Would anyone happen to have any ideas on where I can find AFFORDABLE 2" square clear plastic tubing?  I have an old tackle bag that would make a good jig bag.  Commercial bags are expensive, and the only tubing I can find are expensive too.  Attached is a photograph of what I'm looking for.  TIA.

It may not be very productive,
but it's sure going to be interesting!

Search for surfcasting jig bags and look at the replacement inserts

I can't picture what you're getting at. So please post a picture after you get at it because I'm quite curious.
Any machine is a smoke machine if you use it wrong enough.

Do you have a drawing, plan, photo of what you are intending to accomplish, Bill?

I might offer some alternatives or sources with a little more info.

Bill = I know exactly what you are looking for.  We have a "plastics" shop over on the other side of town on University by the railroad tracks (SW Plastics) that is open to the public and has all kinds of oddball scrap.  And...other things...  I won't be able to get by there for at least a week or two but I will stop in and check to see if they have anything that will work, if they do it should be affordable. - john

Jason and Fred, below is a picture of what I'm trying to accomplish.

John I'd appreciate you taking a look for me.

Yeah, I thought about the shop light protectors, and might have to go with them, just the ID is a little small at 1.20".

Like Bill said, U-Line has them on Page 97 of their new catalog I received last week.  $1.40

Being a woodworker with a good table saw, you might consider getting some decent Marine Grade 1/8" wood stock —- and make your own.  Something like this boat box I use for lake trolling.  Simple enough to measure out exactly what size you want —- them just cut some slots —- put them together and you  are done.  You could do the same thing with 1/4" plexiglas.

Lots of possibilities.

Last thing I would do is pay those outrageous prices for 2' of polycarbonate tubing.

You can get 2" X 3" plastic (gutter)downspouts at most Home Depots or Lowes for fairly cheap. I know it's not the size you want but it may work.

Thank you for all the ideas.  I think I have some plexiglass in the shop and will give it a try.  After looking at the prices of of polycarbonate tubing, no wonder those jigs bags are so expensive.  Leave it to AT.com to come up with great ideas.  Bill
