It's not all that expensive, but I realize the term is relative. Also
the 3-M (MMM) tubing has plenty of hot melt glue inside it as it'll
usually form a bead at each end after shrinking. A piece (between 3 and
4 feet) of the heavy wall 0.88" MMM tubing runs about $10 and that will
do a lot of connections.
