Airline repair technique

I went scavenging through a local machine shops bin and found a perfectly good airline. Except for the split in it.

The flexible coil airline I claimed
The split that had been repaired with duct tape

I though I would try an non- industry accepted technique of putting a bike repair patch on it to see if that could repair it.

Tube patch- that should hold
Cable tie to hold it in place.

I then pressurized it to 110psi 8 bar and it surprising held pressure. I think I’ll have to patent this technique before someone else gets onto it
