P&C has been out of these for a while, anyone know where to get some? Seems like they are the only ones that have the large size.

Go to home Depot and fit your bits to tubing they sell by the foot. Comes in clear, black and white. Two bucks will get you twenty or so. You cut to length. Scissors work.

The large heat shrink tubing can also be used just by cutting an inch or so off and heating it up.

It takes a while, but they're likely coming from the same place as anywhere else. Same as pipe nails, clay humidification discs, etc. My guess is they're all coming from China anyway. I know the nails and discs are.

Not likely to be food safe, thus not safe to be exposed to the mouth for any length of time. Call it overcautious, but with other options, why not go a safer route?

That would also be my recommendation if you weren't deadset on the rubber bits. My Home Depots don't sell it by the foot though. Your local hardware store is a good bet for by-the-foot. I mentioned it in the hack thread.

Do you have a seller recommendation? There are hundreds of listings and virtually no way to determine who's are quality.

I do not. Sorry. I can say that I've ordered tens and tens of items directly from China/Hong Kong/etc on eBay and never had a problem with the items or their customer service. Matter of fact, I did have an item that *I thought* was lost in the mail show up after the Chinese seller had sent another one. They were quick to work with me and make me happy, and it was over a $2 SIPIK SK68 flashlight. Just my experience, and I'm certain some have had nightmare experiences as well. It's all covered by either paypal and/or my credit card company.

In other words, I wouldn't be too concerned with which vendor.

I mean really...90% of the crap we bring into the house is made in China anyway. Not by choice. Merely a fact of our world. It's great to support our retailers, but if they can't bother to keep things in stock, they force us to go direct as another option.

Found these on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01E6HP8SG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Figured I'd give it a try for 10 @ $8

Kind of hard to tell, but I think so.

Judging by the size of most Boswell pipes, they'd be fools to offer anything but large ones. Just sayin'.

Just got these in and they are the large ones. 80 cents each shipped, decent price I think
