Looking For Bendable/Posable Small Wire Sheath


I'm working on a small electronics project which will run off a USB port on a laptop. Unfortunately, I haven't found the right type of housing yet. I'm looking for a bendable, posable shaft that is around 10mm in diameter that can be cut down and can possibly be bought in bulk. Additionally, since the wires I'm using are so thin, copper is probably not the best option. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,

- MT

Search for the phrase flexible gooseneck tubing and you should find some results relevant to your needs.

I would look for 10mm round bar in either aluminum or stainless steel. Something such as that or similar should be available through most metal suppliers.

I don't know what or how you are using it so I don't know if either of those would fit your requirements or not.

Sorry for the late response.

@
Matsukaze - That's exactly what I'm looking for. Unfortunately, it looks like it's either mostly wholesale or min. orders of 500.
@nap - I'm building a USB laptop light and I need something that is bendable.
