I'll guess: no 55134, 3/8" ID x 1/2" OD x 1/16" based on a tip in an
another forum.

I wander if it could be possible to cut in a lathe if its put on a
temporary hub and cooled down with cooling spray.

I'll try to find a seller of this tube on the European side of the ocean.
The one that is refereed to above doesn't seams to ship over seas.
