Well, we're getting there -- they have parts exactly the right shape and size for me. But not the right price, alas; a 2" long tube is $4.97. I was thinking more like 1/10 that price...

Peace,

I don't know how many you need.  McMaster get their rods from PEI Urethanes (here is Austin ironically).  Mcmaster sells a 6" piece of what I want for like $16.  I can get a couple 3' sections from PEI for $100.

Give them a call-they might work out.  They might also have cheaper materials too (polyuretnane is pretty expensive).

I'm probably going to need about 150 2" pieces, or 100 3" pieces, or 50 6" pieces. That's why I need CHEAP.
