Acrylic Tubes

Does anybody know where I can get acrylic tubes for a decent price in the city (or within a reasonable driving distance)? I would like to try and make lily pipes for my xp3 and 2217.

The only place I found is on Canal Street who wants to charge me about $10 for 3 feet.

Thanks,
Steven

That price is pretty regular for most retail joints. Order online if you need cheaper...

Cant give you exact prices, but I just got 6' of 5/8 OD (1/2 ID), 6' of 1" OD 3/4ID, and silicone sealant for 14 dollars. Until you get to the real wide stuff (2" OD), they are all around 5 dollars for 6 feet.

I will probably have extra of each, but wont know exactly how much until next weekend.



how did the amazon swords work out for you?

That's a pretty good deal. I guess I gotta drop by the place some time next weekend.

The swords are pretty healthy. Once they got adjusted to my substrate, they took off!

Thanks again Spencer!
