Default Where to buy square plastic end mill covers?

Hey all,

I just got a 1/2-28 tap from brownells and they sent it in a little paper envelope. I would like to get one of those square telescopic plastic cases, like what they ship end mills in. However, my google fu is weak, I could only find the wholesalers of said items where they only sell them by cartons of 1000+.

I just would really like a cheap protective cover so my tap doesn't get all banged up in my toolbox. Next time I order some end mills from endmilldiscount I might want to see if they can slip in some extra covers, that seems like the only option I have for now.

Thanks for the help,

Jon

Go to TAP plastic, buy a short length of 1/2 i.d. tube and a couple of end caps.

Thanks for the help guys, I ordered some from McMaster. Good to know they have that kind of stuff available.

TAP plastic is just a few minutes away from me as well, seems like a good resource to know about.

Thanks again,

Jon

I use them all the time for out of the ordinary stuff at work, and yes they ship quickly, think the opposite of PSA.
