Default Source for 1mm OD fuel injection tubing?

Hi.
I decided that i need to change the fuel injection tubes, those very thin (1mm) tubes that go inside the vaporizer tubes.
Mine look like they are brass tubes 1mm outside diameter, Does anyone know where i can buy some?
I can use hypodermic needles but i prefer the proper part.

What is not proper about hypodermic needles?

They work just fine, you can get them in different sizes and they cost next to nothing.

You just have to deal with the funny looks at the pharmacy when you ask for them. 😋

I am still laughing...
Well the stock ones have 4 turns on the fuel manifold and i am not sure that i can find a needle long enough but then again i never asked....
I will ask my pharmacist tomorrow for a 6 - 7 cm long needle.
UPDATE
I just ordered some 1mm tubing from ebay but i will try to fit a needle in one injector pipe that broke just to compare.
