will supply tubes of various sizes and types. They have shipped to
the UK in the past and will continue either surface or Airmail. I
have recommended in the past (and still do) the following two sizes:

    5/8 inch x 4 inch- tin tubes with mastitis tip (very similar to
    the size and shape of the HMG tubes);

    1 x 6 inches- aluminum tubes with nasal tips.

Prices (1994) were $50.00/gross (without shipping) for mastitis tin
tubes; $40.00/gross for the larger aluminum tubes.  Tin or aluminum
are both acceptable for use.  1 gross = 144, so that is still very
cheap.  If it sounds like too many, split an order with a colleague,
or just keep them- they have a long shelf life.  When you call
Unipac, ask for Walter.
