    Don't know if this is the right forum, but I figure if anyone is going to know it will be the modders... I have an idea for a mod, but it will need some flexible 120mm (inside diameter) tube to make it work.. Does anyone know where I might be able to lay my hands on such a thing???

    Cheers...

    Not sure - had ducted heating and cooling installed last year -might have to dig out the invoice and give the block who did the install a call...If I find anything I'll post the details here...

    Bunnings sell it. I was just at my local Bunnings and saw it on a shelf up there. I think it was in the bathroom section for exhaust fans.
    Sorry I didn't check the price I just remember seeing it there.

    Also check out stores that sell clothes dryers as some models come with a flexible 120mm pipe to duct the heat out through a window.

    Cheers

    Ok. Found a couple of manufacturers here in Oz...
    http://www.iplspiratube.com.au/
    &
    http://www.speedlock.com.au/2002/speedflex/speedflex.htm

    Seems that the standard sizes are either 100mm inside diameter or 127mm. For what I am thinking of the 127mm would be the go with one of the extra large hose clamps to bring it down to size at either end....
    Now to find a retail outlet...Truncheon spotted something at Bunnings, so I'll start there...failing that I'll simply call the manufacturers and see what they have to say...

    i wouldn't bother with hose clamps, just cable ties, much much cheaper

    Why not duct tape? The situation might not be good for tape, but if it is, give that a consideration, it may be exactly what's best.

    Well seeing as this is a 'duct' i would have thought that duct tape would be ideal ;)

    Exactly what I was getting at cereberos, while the duct tape would adhere well to the duct (duh!) there may not be enough of a support for it to adhere to on the other side of the application.

    Perhaps we need some sort of 'fan tape' or 'case tape' for these sorts of situations? ;)

    But from my ghetto modding days, Duct tape has little trouble holding together most PC related things :)

    seeing as this thread is about 9 years old its probably not the best pace to look.. but, maybe try bunnings they sell ducting like that there, just not sure if it comes that small.
