Subject: [CR] need source for long spokes

Does anyone here know of a reliable source for long spokes? I need a 308mm spoke to repair my front wheel (1970's Shimano low flange hub, 27-inch Super Champion rim, 3 cross). My LBS doesn't have anything this long, nor do any of my usual sources.

I've never snapped a front spoke before -- are my 30+ year old spokes going to start failing in large numbers?
