Checked cable housing

Some time ago, there was a thread with a link to a company selling vintage style checked cable housing. Does anyone have that link, or a source for that style housing?
I tried the search function, but was unsuccessful with my search terminology.
Thanks, Kurt

There is a specialty BMX supply on/line bike shop that I seem to recall carries a lot of unique colors/textures of housing. But I’m sorry I don’t recall the name.

By "checked", do you mean a printed color pattern of alternating colored squares on the plastic sheath, or a fine molded waffle pattern on the plastic sheath?
Asking because I remember seeing original, old, vintage cable sheathing with the fine waffle pattern on it on old bikes (I think from the 50's and older).
I don't think Porkchop BMX would carry those.

Waffle cable housing

If you are looking for gray-colored housing, NOS waffle-textured cable housing comes up on eBay...make sure that the "worldwide" search is enabled.
