    I bought my last 25 plastic test tubes with tops from : www.onlinesciencemall.com They have all different sizes and even have different color caps if you want to get creative. They also have some nice test tube racks if you don't want to make your own.

    Thanks for the replies. I've never heard of Lee Valley so I checked out their
    site. Nice stuff. I ordered some catalogs.
    Thanks

    Or, you can get them from Sloan's for $3.95/dozen. I order other things from them so by buying these at the same time, it probably won't cost anything extra for shipping.

    I have been to that store in Milwaukee a few times (American science and surplus). It is amazing the things you can find in there!!! Dale

    I just got a few sheets of their 3mm finnish birch plywood by mail - I was going to go down there and get them till it was pointed out to me that $9.50 delivery was cheaper than the gas going to Halifax and back.

    Actually I think what Sue meant was that it was cheaper than the gas and all the other "essentials" that I might have bought in LV - not to mention that there is a Chapters and a Home Depot in spitting distance - and the hardwood lumber place 2 miles up the road ...

    I think the catalogues are going to be hidden from me soon ..lol

    I also bought my tubes from Lee Valley. If you can get your hands on the 2nd or 3rd issue of SSW, Pat Spielman had a very easy to make, handy little tube holder. It is a lazy susan with several layers, and holes for tubes. I've made 2 of these, one for myself, and one for a friend. I also use the tubes for holding my small drill bits. When labelling them I found the avery labels didn't stick that well so I just covered the label with a piece of clear tape.

    Are LV still selling them - they were selling them off in the Halifax store for $2 for 10 a few weeks ago in their "bargain"section - I wondered if it was because they were being discontinued?

    Nice price for 20 tubes - BUT - the shipping charge really seems out of line.

    Found a source for blade holder tubes.

    I picked up a bunch of plastic test tubes from American Science and Surplus that work great for blades. They're kind of a translucent milk jug color with a pull off top thats easy to work. The part number is #36094 and the weblink is http://www.sciplus.com/category.cfm?...=4&category=51
    I printed the info of each blade type on a small Avery label and stuck it on the tube but it did'nt stick to well so I put one wrap of packaging tape over the label and tube till it overlapped a little and then cut it. Works great I think. I printed the description in black except for the blade size number I did in red to be easier to spot in the rack. I would post a pic but to be honest I don't know how so if someone could tell me I'd like to give it a shot.
    I have no affiliation with AS&S, just wanted to pass on some info. I would suggest signing up for their paper catalog. It's easier to browse and some of their descriptions are hilarious but be careful it's kinda like going into a dollar store and expecting to only spend a dollar, Hee-Hee.

    I forgot to mention the 5000 watt(?) generator his brother gave him. His brother does house remodeling and lots of times people give him “stuff” just to get rid of it. Bruce had to drain the gas, change the fuel lines and some other minor things for $35 and it starts on the first pull....

    This is his $40 haul. The paint bush was never used. He cleaned up the grinder. He added up all the attachments and brand new everything would be almost $800. This was their yearly tool swap. Every month members bring things they don’t need and swap smaller items. Even scrap wood. Anything 5”x5”...

    Where are you located in England? I was at RAF Lakenheath back in the early 70's and bought my 70 TVR Vixen, which I still have. I absolutely loved my time there.!...
