Rubber Tube for Ball Mill Rollers arives

The Rubber tube I had ordered from Machine Mart arrived today. This is to make the sticky part of the rollers for my Ball Mill. I ordered two sorts because I wasn't sure which would work best.

Their Gas Test tube is the right diameter for a tight fit on M6 Threaded Rod.

Their 8mm Air Line tube is a loose fit on M8 Threaded Rod. Unfortunately the smallest quantity of this I could Get was 10M but i have a feeling I will be using the surplus elsewhere.

The Air Line tube arrived with crimp fitted unions on each end. As it was a shame to waste them I cut them off with 60cm tails so that I could later add PCL hose fittings to them and use them as Air Tool quick release tails.
