Are there any sources of reasonable quantities of polyimide tubing?

Anytime I find #14 or #15 tubing it seems I have to order 500 feet of it.

Do you remember what category it was listed under? I've been browsing their site and haven't come up with anything.

My mistake. It was Cole-Palmer "Polyimide Tubing". Note the spelling. I bought from ColePalmer.co.uk

Found it in the US catalog. Crazy expensive at about $10/foot before delivery.

Too bad smallparts stopped carrying it.

I rang a medical supplier and asked for a sample.
I got 100mm in the post a few days later.

Abrade the surface, then coat with cyano. You can then ise balsa cement to attach it.
