    I have some in 1/2" diameter. I'll give you a piece and you can turn it to the diameter you want. Send your address to my e-mail. Dave

    You can get fiberoptic rods from most hobby and craft stores in diameters from 1/16" to 1/8". I have made my own florescent sights for a couple years. Email your address to me at my sign-on name at Hotmail.com and I'll send you one. I have red, green, and yellow in 1/16" and 1/8" I use the 1/8."
    I have a lot of admiration for Dave because I was never more than a lowly Quickie 500 flyer.

    Thanks for all your answers, you're very kind!

    I just noticed one thing. If I look on a fluorescent rod from top the color is dull, the brightest light will be visible from the butt-end. I’d need something bright all piece long. Is this possible?

    not really, because the purpose of a light "pipe" is to amplify available light when passed through its area of maximum coherence...hence like a "fiber optic filament"
