    Rubber tubing for grainstore discharge spout

    Hi,

    Does anybody know where I can buy 2m of rubber hosing to put on the discharge spout from our grainstore. The metal pipe it is to attach to is an odd diameter at 7 inches so the piping is probably going to have to be 8 inches. It simply hangs down vertically to guide the grain as it leaves the metal tubing. Any help gratefully appreciated.

    Would an inner tube do it?

    It might do. Was trying to get a bit of straight hose but cant find any ordinary rubber tubing.

    Find your nearest canvas or sail maker. I had one specially made for a combine that I had which had a stupidly high emptying auger. If it was a windy day the grain was blown off-course befoer it got to the trailer. You get it made exactly the size that you need. Mine was a sort of rubberised material with a mesh inside it.

    How about a flat sheet of rubber, rolled into a tube and fixed with a few small bolts
