I am looking for a source of 3" or greater lined Brass Tubes in Canada. I have checked a few places, but no joy. Perhaps someone could send me a PM or if a sponser post.

As as a second choice, would consider the States or UK

You may have to line your own....that's no big deal...and you may have to make your own..still no biggie. Try this site on PEI for the basic raw material.

Use generic cotton swap buds (q-tips) as the liner. Use a heat gun, or careful use of open flame from a bic type lighter, to flare the ends of the liner.

Search brass tubing. They may have copper/aluminum also, I did not check.
