    Hi, I need about 3 metres only of plastic FO lead. Used to be able to buy
    from RS, optical conductor plastic, about 0.5mm IIRC, with a black plastic
    sheath. RS prices and likely min quantities are out of the question for this
    one, even if they still have it. Can anyone suggest a source for the small
    amount I need? TIA

    I was under the impression Jaycar stocked some as part of an
    "experimenter's kit".. Perhaps you should check them.

    We buy 1mm plastic fiber optic cable with a black plastic jacket
    (HFBR-RUS500) direct from Agilent.

    It's got an OD = 2.2mm.

    This is the stuff used in amplifier / home theater RX optical

    Here's the data sheet:

    Will it do?

    If so, I can send you some for free (just Bruce - not everyone -
    sorry), as their MOQ is 100m I think.

    I have a bit left over from a previous project and 3m is not even
    worth worrying about the postage.

    Email me if interested: tom(at)

    Farnell do some - 2.2mm od IIRC. I think its "buy by the metre".
