    I thought I would have a look around for a local supplier for the same product.
    After playing email hockey for a few days I got an answer from a supplier,
    Sinclair and Rush. I think they are based in Melbourne but probably ship from
    all capitals.
    They can offer 4 foot clear heavy wall tubes for $2.20 each. Tubes are 7/8 or 24.7904mm
    with a wall thickness of .5588mm. No mention of min order qty either.
    Caps can be supplied per box of 100 for $56.55 per box. Unsure if they are the caps with the hooks
    or not.
    Freight to PostCode 2650 was quoted at around $20 to $30.
    That work out to approx. $2.25 per 600mm tube with 2 caps.
    I will try to get some more info on them today, might be able to get them cheaper with a larger order.

    Ok, I have obviously missed something. What are these tubes used on?

    They are used on the 5050 strips in group buy. Some wanted them for other projects.

    Quick Google search tells me they are in NSW. Was going to offer to take a large order and sub-divide, but not if I have to drive to Sydney....

    Nice work finding them

    Contacted Sinclair and Rush today regarding clear tubes. They have them in stock ready for either pickup
    or they will post them out.
    So the price was $2.22 each plus GST for the 1220 long tubes , and $56.55 per box 100 vinyl caps + GST
    They don,t however stock the hanging type cap.
    They are based in Sydney at Riverstone.
    They currently have 225 in stock for immediate delivvery or pick up.
    So if anyone is interested we could do a group buy and maybe if there is a member in Sydney who could
    pick up and redistribute.
    I will be buying at least 20 tubes and 40 caps for myself.
    These are round tubes and not square. They don't stock the square tubes
