    McMaster-Carr

    Well you can add Canada to the list of Terrorist nations - I placed an order last night through McMaster-Carr. And got the following message:

    "Thank you for your order. Unfortunately, due to the ever increasing complexity of United States export regulations, McMaster-Carr can only process orders from a few long-established customers in Canada. We sincerely regret any inconvenience this causes you."

    I've resubmitted using my old account from my last order I did in 2003 - although that probably doesn't make me a valued customer - we'll see if that flies.

    If it doesn't - anybody want to buy an IDA 71?

    I would not sell your IDA71 just yet. If you wait around a bit, I suspect someone may help you out with your ordering woes.

    Cheers.

    Yeah, now that Denzel finally got what he had sent here, I'm off the hook for now and can arrange a shipment up north. Get your order sent here and I'll FEDEX it up. No worries.

    PM for my address.

    There's two companies in the 'States which allows to to "rent" a physical address in the good old US of A and they can auto-forward or store, consolidate and forward stuff for you.

    They have different schemes, some of them allow up to 3 or 5 people to share an address. Cost is between US$10 and US$20 per month for a basic one.

    USA2ME, RV Mail Forwarding Services, Remailing, US Mailing Address, Mail Receiving Forwarding
    Mail Forwarding Leader - Your Very Own U.S. Mailing Address - Mailforwarding

    I've not gotten round to buying one just yet, but I intend to and it comes highly recommended.

    So my order still fell through with McMaster but I've been able to source most of the other parts and fittings from local hydraulics/fastener supply houses the one part I haven't got is an 1/8 NPT shut off vavle but I'm still looking.

    The snubbers/orifices I ordered direct from okcc and they are shipping from the US unlike corallaro I was able to pay visa and ship UPS

    The brass NPT to barb fittings I got from Grainger (aucklands-grainger in Canada) and fastenal - both have online ordering and offices all over Canada

    Cable glands I got from alliedelec.com which have Canadian offices but I also needed some electronic parts like lumberg connectors, and op-amps etc.

    I'm going to a little more on shipping from so many different vendors instead of one but it won't be as much as using a mail forwarding service.

    Dave I may still take you up on your offer though.

    I plan on building a list of part numbers, suppliers and costs for the wiki when it's implemented.
