-thread to wrap the leather coil cover
-pvc piping for the handle
-rubber bowl grommets for the mouth-piece
-the hose tips
-and decorative materials for the handles
That mental breakdown of the hose seems complete. Did I miss something (John, you should chime in on this!)? Maybe I should just start a thread about it. I really am interested in designing my own. It seems like it'd be fun.
since you are asking me to chime in the most cost effective way to get all the parts is to get a defective one and replair it, for example, mouth and end tip could cost you $5+ then pvc ick $2-3, then running around getting all the parts, i can't advertise but what you did is the most cost effective way, all materials included. you just need to re use them.
i have tried myself to repair but it's time consuming and i am low on time and patience. but it seems you did a great job, thanks
