New to this site. It is AWESOME ! I need a source for the capillary tubing (vacuum tubing) to rebuild my bench. I have a JKM bench must be 20 years old at least. Have been using medical tubing works ok but doesn't last it dries out fast. Thought about trying some auto vacuum tubing from auto parts store. or some clear tubing from Home Depot-Lows . Any suggestions is appreciated. Please advise and thanks.

Hello D-mailman ..Seja welcome.
I did not know this flow bench and went searching.
I found this diagram found interesting, may serve for something.
The capillary tubes can not help but perhaps an idea, as you are rebuilding your flow bench may upgrade to PTS-DM is an option. Not sure that can be adapted this is something to talk to Bruce
Anyway we live in the digital age. ;)

Good luck with your project.

Tygon tubing from McMaster Carr comes in all sizes and colors

Cheapest would be local pet store buy some Aquarium tubing, comes in PVC or Silicone. Get the middle grade not the really really thin wall style. You can get a roll of the tubing on the net, that is how I buy it.

Here in my area my local ACE Hardware sells Tygon tubing at a very reasonable price :)
