Stuffing tube confusion

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a 1/2" tube to fit my 5# stuffer from Gander Mountain. Is this actually an LEM stuffer? I'm thinking that will work with 16mm collagen. AC Legg's site calls for a 7/16" tube for their 19mm cases, though (???). I'm thinking snack sticks here.
LEM tubes are a 1 9/16 base, but I've seen them at 1 1/2"...
Also what size tube should I use with 2 1/2" collagen?
Any help would be appreciated. Unlike the Mrs., I don't like ordering and returning LOL!

Tube sizes, from manufacturers, are usually described measuring the inside hole....

 

This home made tube is 1/2" O. D. and 21mm casing are HUGE on it...   I'm sure 19's would easily fit.....

Thanks, Dave. That's an idea! I could cut the ends off the the plastic ones that came with it, bell the end of a ridgid tube and make my own. I know stainless is best, but I wonder if copper would work...

Check this out....

  These tubes are 0.014 wall... very little resistance when stuffing...  they also have Stainless tubing....   I chose brass so I could flare the end...
