Tubes

With Micro Tubes from Albion Alloy, you may create a better appearance of your model. We use for these matters the 0.5mm/0.33mm brass tubes and cut it in proper length of 5mm. alternatively, you buy it already finished in new silver as product number TB1 with 0.4mm/0.25mm 3mm long or TB2 with 0.5mm/0.33mm 4mm long. The self-cutting method is the cheapest, but you need a jig and a Dremel to cut it. Afterward the ends must be deburred.

Well, the thing you have to care is, not to forget to put two of them on your filament.

For any tube under 2mm I just roll a scalpel blade where it needs to be cut and then snap it off with a small pair of pliers. For 2mm I use a JLC razor saw blade (as it's hard-point) to score around the tube and then snap it off as above. Using this method the burr isn't too bad so a minimum of clean-up. I find it's quicker and gives a cleaner cut than using a dremel.

Well, but I failed to get 150 pieces exactly the same lenght. Therefore I changed the method!
