    American Laboratory Supply
    1033 Ohio Avenue Richmond, CA 94804 Phone: 510-620-0220

    is probably your best bet for glass, its not cheap but they have a good selection of tube mostly schott and corning. Also as GA and NS color (retail price, no breaks)
    i still order most everything from ABR, glasscraft, and frantz.
    i just got a tube of schott 50x5 from him the other day... almost 50 f'ing dollars @9$/LB

    C&R LOO. (also in richmond) http://www.crloo.com/ carries more soft glass items, but they will have alot of your misc shop kinda stuff, like kiln brick and hand tools.. ++++ kickass prices on national hand torches.

    look up trabant co in reno, talk to Jan. he picks up his glass in Oakland and might let you grab some glass when he does a supply run. I think he's all Chinese tho.

    I bought glass for years from American Labs in Richmond. Great people, and if you buy a fair amount of supplies they will probably knock down your price.

    Also try West County Glass in Sebastopol. Good peeps and a relatively small but good selection of glass and tools. They also have shop spaces for rent. Just opened up a year or two ago
