    Hey everyone, Ive found some great round glass toppers for various uses, top of light poles, north poles etc

    In the light section and bunnings, Internal diameter of the glass is 80mm. With its base there is a grove on the inside that snugly fits a 90mm Pvc pipe. Priced around $20 from memory.

    Hopefully it helps a few people out, I was struggling to find something to suit, just a shame its not plastic.

    Good find.. I need one a bit bigger, around 80cm, and must be polycarb or fibreglass.. Can buy from a lighting supplier but bloody expensive..

    Yeah i found them hard to get, I was only after a small one to fit on some storm water pipe so it worked well. There is some on aliexpress I've looked at before bit didn't get much further than that.

    I have found them in masters before, so it may be worth checking out before they close down. Then I bought another 4 for this year from stratco and they were only $5

    Thanks scamper, My masters didn't stock these, and unfortunately we don't have a stratco so that may be why I wasn't having any luck.
