I'm looking to buy some extra Tygon, 1/2" from McMaster, but I'm not sure which model # is the right tubing.

5554K18 looks right to me, but could someone verify this?

5554K19 is the one you want, it is 1/8" wall, the one you have listed is 1/16" wall, too thin and will kink easy. The 5554K19 is $3.20 a foot though, almost twice as much as the 5554K18.

Do you know what DTEK sells? They don't charge 3.20 a foot, and I like the tubing I got from them.

If not, I'll go with the 5554k19

Thanks nikhsub1
