If you're into DIY, it looks very much like the snap together pipe used for coolant on lathes, milling machines and the like.

See here for 11 inch lengths (http://www.rdgtools.co.uk/acatalog/Coolant_Pipes_and_Systems.html)

or

here for three foot of the stuff (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/MACHINE-COOLANT-PIPE-100-CM-1-4-6-MM_W0QQitemZ330291152731QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Home _Garden_PowerTools_SM?hash=item4ce6e3075b)

My experience with Warehouse Express is that this may not necessarily mean that it really is in stock.

Would these things work in the same way, and stay still?

If so, all you'd need to do is find a way of attaching some bulldog clips to the ends - any ideas how?

Ellie, they are quite stiff, I use them on my own lathe & milling machine.
Depending on where you get them from, they normally come with a threaded insert one end 1/4 BSP so that will attach to something with a bit of ingenuity.
The other end takes a selection of nozzles, so it would probably be possible just to poke an alligator clip into the hole.
Might have a try one day, but just not got the time at the moment.

Suffering from the Yorkshireman's complaint, (short arms, deep pockets) I made some. I ordered the 11" lengths from RDG Tools (thanks Peak4), bought some spring clamps from Aldi (a large bag of assorted sizes 2.99).
Used a combination of self-tappers and a 1/2" UNF tap to attach.
Will post photo later.

This does`nt differ that much from the real thing! I am impressed Rod esecially as mine was 30 more than your version :( Why don`t you make some more & sell them on ebay for around 20 each ;)
