What do you use to replace missing cardboard light shield tubes on Gottlieb light boards?

I'm missing one on Time Line for the Player 1 lamp. It looks like it's about 1-1/2" outer diameter, 1-1/4" inner diameter, and about 1-1/4" tall. However, this is give or take a few 16ths of an inch.

PBR doesn't carry them and wasn't able to tell me the "official" size.

I checked a few office supply sites, but they either sell in bulk or don't seem to have the right size.

PVC might be your best option. I used a piece of Christmas paper core once. It was too small and too soft but it lit the right spot OK.

If it were me, I would look into PVC...or something similar

You might want to look at some tape cores, duct tape, packing tapes). The cardboard tubes used vary a lot in diameter so something might be usable.

I have some from parts games, PM me and pester me to look.

Check hobby stores that sell model rockets. You could probably find something suitable in one of the kits.

I eventually found a junk light board from someone a while back that I pulled the light shield tubes from.

I found a white shipping tube the same size as the larger shield at the UPS store. I didn't look for anything smaller.
