Usually sold in sets of three. Not sure any are exactly 10mm though. I think my set started at 11mm? But I'm not sure.

10mm is an unusual length for an M42 tube, but I've found a few old sets on eBay that include one, by searching for "M42 10mm extension tube":

Here's a set of Sears auto tubes with 10mm, 18mm and 26mm on ebay:

Sears M42 tube sets are common on ebay, but I believe they usually have an 11mm instead of 10mm for the smallest.
I have a couple sets of Sears M42 tubes and they're nicely built and finished.

Without wishing to rain on BigMackCam's helpful suggestion, I must say I was very unhappy with the service I received the one time I bought from that particular seller.
