    This type of tubing is too small for that, but makes a really nice hoop skirt for Halloween!
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.

    I use 3/16" tubing from my local hardware store to make belts for my treadle machines. I use a 'hose mender' that we sell here at work that's used on farm sprayers to connect the two ends. I have never been able to make a regular leather treadle belt work - always mess up the hole for the staple.
