Response to Hose colour
Toine and Alex,
Yes, I am getting excited at the prospect of this all working out to our liking!
There's still some details to work out.
I am working with the braiding people to create the exact weave. I did obtain superb photos of an original hose, which is black with yellow fleck.
To keep unit cost down the first run will be black with yellow fleck. Then if there's still demand we could do another run of black with white. Maybe later do an all yellow braided hose, which would be cheaper of course!
Initially, it looks like the hoses will be without a connector. I would like to get a MKIII connector for each hose. I may have to create a repro. Anyone out there know of a cache?
Also, unfortunately, the braid will be rayon, not cotton. Nothing I can do about that but it should look fine as a matt rayon is available.
I can't say what the unit price will be yet. I hope it will be reasonable. It all depends on the cost to create the braid.
