I was in a shop looking for LED lighting and strolled into the back and found out they had some brass tubes with 1/2 inch ID and no seam.  A five foot section was beyond my price range for a blowgun, but it made me wonder.  Has anyone used brass or bronze tubes to make a blow gun?  The reason for asking about bronze is they had an empty space labeled bronze.  This was a home decor shop and the tubes were for curtain rods.   Oh a 5 foot brass tube was $81and change. :phew:

I'm sure it will work but a little bit on the pricey side.

I always confuse brass and bronze. I made one out of one of the two in the "standard build" thread. It was $8 for a 5 foot section.

I thought that was copper Naturalfork.  Copper is used in both brass and bronze.

Copper... yes you are correct. Haha ... as you can tell, I do not know my metals.
