I havent tracked down the exact cataloge numbers yet but wanted to ask : What else might I be missing that can come from Mcmaster?

Take a look at JR's build and you will find a spreedsheet. Thanks


Go to http://www.msnusers.com/ncmechmate/d...nw?fc_a=0&fc_p= there you will see a link to a spreadsheet, the info about the cable chain is in it, lines 13, 14, 16, 17. thanks J.R. ps when I double click the spreadsheet link it opens up.

Charlie,

You might want to check the list I posted on my personal thread. It isn't all inclusive but rather includes some things I used to build my control box.

Just a note for Canadian builders, I just put together an order for McMaster Carr and submitted it, and their export guy emailed me with this:

"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. "

So I am looking for another supplier to replace these guys.

John

Parts in Canada are difficult to find and very marked up if you find them.
Good luck

Thanks for the info Larry,

I have been having a very hard time sourcing parts in Canada. I can't seem to find anything up here. Somebody should let these companies know that people do in fact like to shop online.

Thanks again,
John

I've got a place in Lexington, Michigan and a boat. I could meet you half way across Lake Huron and you could have the first ever Mamba built with smuggled parts!

**edited** my geography is a little off but I could meet one of your fellow Canadians and they could ship it the rest of the way **end of edit**

Charlie, sorry I don't mean to steal your thread, but I need to respond to Craig's offer.

Hi Craig
I live in Leamington which is about 40 minutes from Detroit. I may take you up on your offer and have McMaster parts shipped to you and then I would come over and pick them up. May be I could see your MechMate as well.
Do you have the laser cut parts yet? I ordered two sets. They are at a shop getting bent right now so I don' know the final cost yet. If you are interested we could discuss it once the final cost comes in.

Paul
