Where can I buy cardboard tubes?

Wanna make a scope? Or better still, grind a mirror yourself. Or, you have some good tips in making a really useful accessory? This is the place to show what your hands can do...

Not sure if they have it but you can try the 2 following places :
1. Harbourfront Stationary shop
2. Bras Basah Complex. They have many stores focussed on art and paints.

Try industrial businesses:

I remember a shop selling cardboard tubes for storing cement poweder somewhere in Paya Ubi.

You may want to consider PVC pipes as they are more solid and easier to cut. I remember seeing one at the ground floor of Paya Ubi too. They do not require you to buy the whole 6m pipe.

Hi Im looking for somewehere in the UK where I can buy a RHD steering rack pinion for a MKIII Midget. They are no longer available in the MOSS catalogue and places I know dont sell them. Does anyone know somewhere? Perhaps a good quality reproduction?

What automobile auctions providers do you know? I recently found http://www.carfrom.us auto auction. I found good salvage HONDA ACCORD 2010 Image Image . I'm glad that i searched VIN in vehicle registry database before buying. It had partial repair damage. Be safe and consistently run VHR and check records by vin before buying.
