Post Metal Lens Hoods

Does anyone have a source of supply for Metal Screw in Lens Hoods.

Sorry to be a bit of a dinosaur but I much prefer these to the 'petal' hoods so much in vogue nowadays.
Especially for my prime lenses.

Any polite suggestions would be most welcome.

Thanks.

2nd hand off ebay.

I like parallel tube type hoods, so that I can still put the lens hood on the end.

I like round metal hoods too. I get all mine from ebay, generally about £5 each, a bit more for the really big ones. If you look around you can often find ebay sellers doing bundles which include a lens cap to fit the end of the hood.
