I have several clear perspex seed feeders where the perspex has cracked or is quite scratched and unsightly.
The metal fittings are all still in good condition so it seems a shame to to throw them away, if I could replace the clear plastic tubes.
The problem is that I'm struggling to find anyone who can supply such tubing (65mm/2.5" x 2mm wall).
Can anyone help please.
Jim

Hi there
Have you tried Ebay? Trent Plastics advertising on there have a wide selection which might suit your needs.

Hi Kathy , I tried ebay but couldn't find anything the right size.
I did, however find some grey plastic tube the correct size, just means you can't see the seeds.
I now have a meter long 8 bird sunflower feeder using the reclaimed ports from a couple of broked feeders.
I only have to fill it every 2 or 3 days now.
