Where Can I Get Tube Connectors?

Hi All,

I am constructing a couple of truss-tube Dobs roughly along the lines of Kriege and Berry`s "The Dobsonian Telescope". Right now, I am having some difficulty in locating a source for the tube connectors that the authors advocate for joining the struts to the end rings on the secondary cage. Superior Components make the things, but only sells them in 1000 piece quantities.

I am interested whether anyone else has run up against this difficulty and how you got around it.
