From Perry on the previous forum.

I have mentioned this in the Scratchbuilding section but thought it might be useful to post here:

When using plastic tubing to represent industrial pipework, or even drainpipes, it's not easy to glue the ends of pieces of tube together at an angle. The mating surfaces are just too small and don't hold enough glue.

The answer is to insert a short piece of stiffish wire of a suitable diameter into the tube, securing it in place with a dab of glue. You can bend the wire to the angle you require for the joint and then slip the other piece of plastic tube over it. A little more glue or solvent will hold the whole lot together.

You can also use this method to extend a plastic pipe simply by using a straight piece of wire. The join can be covered if necessary by a narrow paper 'collar'.
