    Spring tubing for lack of better words.

    Hello all, I am looking for something that I don't even know what the name of it is. In some youtube video's on bullet collators the bullet travels through a flexible spring looking/slinky like tube to its final destination. It reminds me of a screen door spring but longer and more flexible with a larger internal diameter.

    I have no idea what it's called to do a search for it on the net or in any of my machinery supply catalogs.

    Any and all help would be appreciated on finding out what this is called and where to buy it.

    Scott

    It's a spring.
    You can get it from McMaster.
    Just get the correct ID

    Look at extension spring stock

    Subtract double the wire diameter from the OD to get the ID.
