Glass tubes

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.

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.

S'cuse me, I meant what length do you require in the glass tubing you seek?

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.
