Can any one recommend someone/somewhere that could make up some oil pipes, for a remote oil filter?

I can't recommend anyone your way, but you could try a hydraulics shop, truck
maintenance place, forklifts, garage, haulage fleet or somewhere like that.

Hydraulic hoses are used everywhere and the fittings for various sizes will be a standard, so
I should think there are several around you that you may have not thought of yet.

They would, but would just prefer crimped pipe ends.

Where Dad works they use jubilee clips on 90psi air lines with no problem  :-\

That's as maybe I guess, and airlines have a habit of releasing the pressure on a more regular basis.
Whereas the oil pressure in your system will be up and constant.

Heat will also soften the pipework and the oil will also make the joint area slippery. All things
that will work against you when the fittings part company.

You are correct Hazel, but its best to use the screwed and properly crimped on fittings. Just because
of the environment its dealing with...

Hazel I did my own using Aerquip Hoses and pipework.

Really easy to be honest and cheaper than having some made up.

As an example, I use these guys Hazel;

IES

Mainly because they're so close and convenient.

Not for the buggy though... A 50 year old tractor I look after  ;D
It all began in September 2008...

Slow progress...

Check online for your nearest branch of Pirtek, they run a fleet of mobile vans but you'd be best going to the counter and showing them what you need...

I also use Aeroquip for everything, oil, fuel, breather hoses, etc. no more expensive than Pirtek.
I can supply you with hose and most of the fittings if you are interested.
I can either do stainless over braided hose and annodised fittings, or blue push-fit hose and Nickel plated steel fittings, both hose types have a burst rating of over 20,000 PSI, the push-fit does not require any additional clips.
There are 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't
