Does anyone know where I can get some larger PS tubing, in the 3/4" range? Best I can tell, Evergreen and Plastruct don't sell anything that large. My general Google searches and hunting on Amazon aren't getting me anywhere.

Once you get to a certain size, "normal" styrene isn't feasible.

However, ABS is and depending on your location look for architectural model suppliers or other hardware shops.

For example, http://www.ema-models.co.uk/index.php/abs-tubes-fittings/one-piece-extruded-tubes.html
Note that I havn't used them, so can't say how good their service is. and it's not exactly cheap.

ABS = acrylonitrile butadiene styrene and is a basically modifies styrene by introducing a second phase, butadiene rubber. Not all ABS is the same, so probably best to try before buying in bulk.
