If he's not renting them out Pete usually has a fine selection of cylinders for sale usually with recent PPT, PRV and Internal. Celia spends hours polishing them so they'll be nice and smart. If you want a bespoke cover for them then you could do worse than order an elasticated one at the same time. They were the first to make them like that you know!
