Hi Terri,
 I haven't been able to track down Griffon brass tube for over a year now. They must of stopped production.
Albion Alloys is the only way forward. If you do decide on AA you will need to run a drill bit through the tube before rigging. Just to clean any bits left over from the cut 'n snap.

Good luck with your search!

Most likely the supplier for both Albion and Griffon is www.precision-tube.com.tw
This manufacturer is located in Taiwan. However the minimum order is far more than you could ever use. It would nice to see someone package this tubing for modelers at a more reasonable price than Albion.

Terri,
    Like Eric I get Albion tubing from Sprue Bros. They have a full selection and great service, also I find their prices pretty reasonable. Last, they ship USPS, so getting hit by the "Border Thugs" isn't likely on a small order such as this.
Cheers,
Lance

Here's a Canadian source for your consideration, but note that their prices, including shipping, are all in USD (and quite expensive IMO if just purchasing a couple of items):

There is something fundamentally amiss with a society which forces it's modelers to work for a living.
