    We have two identical 1m lengths of tubing but in the instructions the steps call for "1 x 800mm of 2mm ID PFTE Tube" (21.7) and later on, "1 x 1000mm 4mm OD - 3mm ID Thin-Walled PTFE Tube" (21.2).

    Ok firstly I think that numbering is odd, must be 21.12 IMHO, I saw it on the Wiki too but the step before is called 21.11.2 so...

    What ID have your two pieces?

    ID=inner diameter... 21.7 wants 2mm, 21.12 wants 3mm
    Are both 1000mm pieces you got 3mm or 2mm inner diameter?

    I'd just use them both without cutting them. You can cut later but you can't make them long again...
