Does anyone know where to get Borosilicate glass tubes about 1 1/2 '' in
diameter without having to buy a boatload? The length is not so important as
I can cut them to what I need.  Thank You, Sharon

How much is a boatload?
How many do you want?
How long do you want them?
Are you stuck on the 1 1/2"?
What about 50 mm?

I would imagine she wants them for a long time. She's probably going to
make something out of them.

Re: Glass tubes

Sharon,
Do a search for Crown Scientific, their site here in Australia is
 www.crownscientific.com.au
There may be outlets in other countries too.
I get tubing through them from Japan.
Lengths are generally 1500mm, I get around the biggest diameters though.
Re cutting, please let me know if you are having any trouble cutting and
grinding, I have found the need to anneal after I have them hot lamp / cool
cut on a diamond score, before they are ground.

I live in a 120.000 people town.
I opened the yellow pages and i found under " laboratory equipment
/glass blower 2 companies selling borosilicate tubes.
Buy them locally.

OK Olenkotona, thats great, but in this town of 12,000 , I AM the guy in the
book, now what?
Its nice to buy local when you can, but be realistic, not everyone lives in
a metropolis and what the heck, I can use the biz.
