Default Industrial Pipes

Okay so I'm building an industrial base, (I mentioned it in my earlier thread) and I'm wondering what to use for piping. I want something more durable and realistic than straws, however actual tubing is a bit too expensive (8$ for a junction that takes up 2". no thanks). So if anyone has any suggestions please let me know.

I've got some THICK cardboard rolls I was intending to use as piping eventually. I've never gotten around to it. They are not your standard paper towel roll cardboard though. The tubes I've got/think would work were used to hold uninflated packing pillows. (Worked for a while in a warehouse so getting them was easy for me) On the one hand water will doom them. On the other, I've spray a few and cut a few just to see how it work go and it seems alright since they're real think.

You might want to consider something like that if you can get it.

actually, the ones I've got are about 3 times as thick. I'll see if I can get a picture up this weekend.

You might try the local plumbing supply shop, and see if they have a "remnants" or leftovers bin. You'd be surprised what bits and pieces you might find in there, and usually at a discounted price...
