Default Inductor winding bobbins suppiers

As the title suggests im looking for a supplier of bobbins to wind my own inductors on. I seem to have no difficulties finding companies in the USA, but im looking for somewhere in the UK. Anyone any ideas?

Cheers Matt

Actually I have come to the conclusion that I might aswell make them like solens perfect lay. I have already make a winding machine out of lego and it works really well. Although you have to feed the wire on by hand it will only take about three mins to make a 1mH inductor and cost considerably less then buying them!

Ofcourse I now need to find somewhere selling 0.7-1mm enamelled wire in bulk quantities. So far the maximum ive found is by the kilo but im looking to buy more then that, simply because the more you buy the better value for money it is.

Bah, I could fart a 1mH choke. Now when I need 1 or 2H, out comes the cordless drill.....

20 AWG wire eh? Anything around 2-4A (dead transformers...) will have some of that.
