    Anyone in the GTA or 400 to Barrie area know of a robotics store. I need some small pipe clamps. No time to have them shipped.. i want to drive and pick up before the Christmas shut down.

    If you do not have the time to do it right, where do you get the time to do it over?

    Not sure where this place is in relation to you and not sure if they have what you are looking for but here they are. I bought a soldering station from them.

    Thanks Dennis.. they don't have what I need.

    Its becoming a real PIA finding these pretty common parts in Canada. Google is so fixed to search only in the usa so that you have pay $35US!!!!!!! to ship about 20 grams of parts. I swear Im not buying Cocaine.. but for that price it might as well be!!

    What size tube goes in the first clamp? It looks very much like our helicopter boom clamps. If the size is common to one of the heli brands you could easily find them at a heli shop.

    I found 20mm ones but a bunch do not list there size . Contact these guys and let them know what you are looking for and I am sure they can get you something that will work.

    Re: Need help finding....

    Thanks Dennis..I will check in person today as I drive right by them. I also found them at Walmart online of all places. 6 for 34 dollars but won't arrive till January. I hope to get 2 at rotorquest so I can carry on with my prototype over the holidays.

    Thanks again for your help Dennis

    Re: Need help finding....

    welp!.. My trip to rotorquest was a complete success. Kinda. They had exactly what I needed and only wanted $54 for 2 tiny parts. HA!! See Ya! I said.

    I went ahead and order a bunch from Amazon.ca as they were the lowest cost with free shipping. If I have to I will just finish the prototype by gluing the Horizontal stabs in permanently. Un freaking believable

    Trevor you may just have to get yourself a small lathe or mill . I find them so helpful when doing projects . I hate having to run around finding parts and paying huge bucks for something that you could make yourself in 20 min ..
