    Yes, I have bought it there before. They have a few different grades of it or however they term the different numbers.

    Here is American Plastics website, and their address to get directions:
    http://americanplasticscorp.com/

    They do have tube(its on a display showing the sizes on the front desk) as well as Weld on. The lower the number the thinner the glue. Usually you use 3 or 4 for putting together 2 peices, and a higher number for wholes(Jimmy correct me if I got that wrong)

    They also have ABS plastic, for a lot cheaper if you don't need to see through it.

    I have that router bit and all that need to be done is have a jig made to support the flange.
