I refuse to pay almost $75 for a rubber 3/8in hose. Anyone have a good recommendation for a replacement. The biggest issues is the 90deg bend other than that a straight piece of hose will work.
Any plant machinery or hydraulic service repair shop can make you one up with sealed metal bends or sell you a bit of tube.

I had a pipe made up with metal end fittings, 12 quid....and they pressure tested it.
