Uhm, maybe people don't have any input? You could try being patient too.

The rods in teh film are 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter and are clear tubes painted white except for the clear exposed area at the top and bottom.

As for cutting it in half, how long is it now?

On second thought, scratch question 2 ( cut it in half or not). I found a pre-cut dowell and Mercury just uses hers like a disc in for game boy.
