I did post a query last week asking if anyone knew of availability of high spec hoses with a smooth finish.
The tumbleweed is still rolling across my yard with no response at all.
So another problem solved today,,,,,,,,,
I have been messing about with hose printing for some time now and at last I think that I have a good tool to print modern hoses with the old markings.
Today I managed to get it to print pretty cleanly on some new hose at the third attempt by changing out the paint formula and adjusting the tampon applicator.
The second and third yellow print is a top quality long lasting tyre paint thickened for the applicator and to stop bleeding.
