Where is borosilicate glass tubing (or similar) available to be purchased?

For me, ordering online is a last resort, so I was wondering if anyone knew of any brick-and-mortar stores that carried something like that. Also, the woman who runs the chemistry dept storeroom at my university is a singularly unpleasant lady who won't even give students new equipment unless the lab professor insists.

How to remove white enamel labels and graduation lines on borosilicate glassware?

I have a couple of pyrex lab media bottles that have graduation lines and patches of white for labels. I believe this stuff is enamel that is baked on to the glass. Does anyone know of a way to remove the enamel without scratching the glass?
