HELP: question about tubes / piping on steampunk figures

Postby Darth Veach » Wed May 23, 2012 9:38 am

I see so many cool steampunk figures and customs I wanted to try my hand at some. Finding gears was easier than I thought, but I am having a little trouble locating pieces that would be good for the tubing or conduit. I just heard about using guitar strings which I am going to explore. Are there any other suggestions? I saw some tubing on Ebay that is from Lego sets and wondered if it would work. It has that ridged detail like conduit has and that is what i am looking for. Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks!

Lego tubes work great! So do headphone wires, and stuff like that :)
You'll be lucky if you're one of the few to find someone who can tolerate you.

most of those older lego technic sets had all kinds of gears and hoses with them..i think that would be your best bet
