Look in the phone book under hoses. Find a place that sells hydraulic hose.
They will also carry air hose which you can buy in 3/4". They will also have
the proper fittings to put on the hose. 3/4" hydraulic hose rated at 5000
psi is very stiff and expensive. If you use hydraulic hose use a single wire
braid which will be more flexible, cheaper and rated for a much higher
pressure than you will need.
