Looking for a few odds & ends

I was fairly active in here some time ago but due to various reasons I had to set the neon hobby aside for a while. I've since made a spurt of progress and had one of those "I get it" moments where the glass is suddenly cooperating and making decent welds and bends, so I've worked more getting things set up and I'm looking for a few assorted bits and pieces I'm missing.

2.75" tube standoff, I only need one of them to support the TC gauge stopcock on my manifold.

Tipping torch, used one is fine, just something serviceable that will work with natural gas+air.

Blow hose, the one I made a couple years ago leaves something to be desired, time to just buy one.

18mm glass, 2 or 3 2' sections ought to do it, I only need it for the vacuum system so I'd never use up a whole case.

Also curious what's out there these days as far as electrodes that include the mercury, would be happy to pay for a few samples to play with. I'm a hobbyist and not in this for money so whatever I buy a case of is what I'm stuck using for quite a long time, and I'm not crazy about having a bottle of liquid mercury sitting around the house.

If anyone can help me out with any of this stuff, please contact me with your asking price and we can go from there. Thanks!
