I knew they used to be called cigar tubes, but I never see them for cigars anymore, at least not that size. Any self respecting Pb store sells them for around 15 cents

Yes, and we dont get them for much cheaper than that. Its a bonus item I carry to help you guys fill your total want list. If you bought 50 tubes, I might make a couple dollars.

I always figured they were originally cigar tubes, just custom ones to hold our modified horse pills (or were they bath beads?)

The real mystery is why the speed caps always seem to cost more than the tubes themselves.

They shouldnt. Speedcaps are 10 cent and tube/green cap is 15 cent on my site.

Speedcaps are thread savers from a company called Plas-tix USA in Ohio. 2500 per case.

What a minute.

I'm suprised this was missed by others.
What OTHER colors can they sell for the PB community?

The colored ones are cigar tubes only. Serafina only sells clear ones for PB.

Totally.
How much is it for a single case of tubes and speedcaps?

BTW, hvacman, where are you/your store located?

Well, not really. If these particular ones are just for the PB industry can you imagine the cost increase if they had to make them in various colours and then to the shops that need to buy huge amounts of each color to serve the customers?

You'd get colours OK but it would likely double or more the cost per tube. One reason being that they sit around using up heat and light for longer and the other being that Serafina has to make smaller batches of each color so there's more setup time per batch.

We should be happy that they are making "our" size at all.
