I'm having real problems finding some ferrules for my two retro frames. I need them for the ends of the gear and brake outer cables. All the ones I can source are made in plastic or metal and plain, straightforward endcaps. I need ones with a shoulder or extra smaller diameter bit on the end that fits into a braze on that has a smaler diameter. Anyone know where I can find these? They must have been a standard fitment at one time because my frames are Condor and Claude Butler from the 80's and 90's.

SJS cycles have some of these which might be suitable. Not sure the rules regarding posting links to products but here it is...

I do love SJSC, but it has to be said their search function has always been a bit poor.
