Ok, I think I've found a solution. 2 rolls of clear plastic tubing from the "plumbing and kitchen repair" section ($1.99 each) and a pair of 4mm nuts. The outer size is about 3/8". The second roll of tubing is one size smaller (1/4"), and fits neatly inside the 3/8" tubing to add some stiffness to the whole thing. Rubber cement the nut in the top, and you're home free. BTW, if anybody needs one of these, I now have enough tubing to make approximately 400 of them. Nuts are $.12/ea at your local hardware store. Too easy. Thanks again for all the help,
