Default Clear Tubes?

I need some ideas of where to source some clear plastic/glass tubes. 2-3" diameter and roughly 4' long. Wall only needs to be about .06, thicker is OK, but not so thin that they crack.

I need about 20 of 'em.....??

Expensive proposition. Can't begin to figure out what you would use them for.
But, another location is in Pontiac on Opdyke if I remember. East side of road, south of Walton. Can't remember the name though.
Care to clue us in on the project?

If you dont mind them slightly smaller, the protection tubes for T12 fluorescent lamps would work. They are cheap and 8' long usually. They are probably like 1-3/4" though.

Pyrex makes glass plumbing tubing. is that what you're looking for. Their stuff is most definitely for chemical plants and pharmaceutical companies. I worked with it up at MTU in their chemical sciences building.
