    Looking for a supplier who will do a one metre section of rubber hose for my plasma cutter. I've tried my usual local welding shop but they only do long hoses with crimped ends. EBay throws up a couple of sellers but the postage is ridiculous. Here's the hose in question, ID is 7.5mm and OD is 15mm:

    I'll go with eBay if there's no choice but a fiver postage for such a small bit of hose (which I'm not 100% is the correct size) is a bit frustrating.

    Cheers :)

    motor factors, caravan parts dealers, agricultural places usually have short runs of hose, or atleast the one here does
