Title: 6mm Hollow Mandrels...
Post by: Fluffstar on November 03, 2015, 05:24:53 AM
Just found this while killing time on Amazon:

Thin walled, but that's not a problem if you're using them for blown baubles or things like that.  Certainly better than the stainless-steel-chopsticks-with-the-ends-chopped-off that I used for a long time!

They look pretty good to me, complete with cleaning brush. Think I feel a purchase coming on! Thanks for flagging it up   :D

Actually, I went for these as they are posted from the UK not China, so they have done most of their travelling and will reach me sooner!

Good call.  I hate how you have to practically be an amateur detective these days to find out whether something you buy on amazon is actually shipping from the uk.  The delivery date is usually a giveaway at checkout but if you've got lots of stuff in your basket it can escape your notice.  At least ebay has a handy 'Item location' filter so you don't even see stuff that's shipping internationally.

Amazon's always a last resort for me - I'll buy pretty much anywhere else if I can!

Yeah but when you accidentally got yourself Prime membership the temptation of having stuff delivered the next day is very hard to resist!! =D

PS: thank you for my mandrels!
