I got mine from Zoro tools. but if I had to do it over again I don't think I would buy them. The PTFE SS hoses are expensive. But if you do buy them, get the ones with the swivel ends because with that, they are much harder to install.

I would probably use a high-pressure hose that is food grade from McMaster Carr in the future.

I also got mine thru Zoro. The non swivel ends do make it tough putting together or taking apart.
I ended up Using Tri-clover style threaded fittings on the ends of the SS lines to make it a lot easier to work on. I may even put in a few more to further ease working on.
