Does anyone know of a good place in NZ to buy these or an overseas place that doesn't charge too much for shipping?

Just buy it from overseas - I got one a while back and I think it cost around NZ$40 all up including shipping - off eBay.

Edit: NZ$35.97 to be exact.

There's someone on TradeMe with just about any size - have you had a look?

Just one. They packaged it in a straw, stuffed into a piece of conduit, wrapped with bubblewrap.

Check out JayCar. I understand these light sources are used for a bunch of things, including the stupid under-car lights that were briefly a fashion for folks with more cash than brain cells. Just gotta get the right length. Very delicate however.

Give Surplustronics a go. I don't know if they have them, but they do have a huge selection of goodies
