Raw materials, Canada and US

I've finally located a supplier for lockpick materials and other miscellany in Canada and the US. Most larger centres have these stores. You can also shop online and I believe they have free shipping.

Acklands-Grainger in Canada.
http://catalogue.acklandsgrainger.com/a ... 3&lang=enu

Here's the link to the Canadian catalog page 714 for shim stock and music wire.
http://catalogue.acklandsgrainger.com/a ... 3&lang=enu

ETA: OOPS! Seems this link doesn't take you to the page. Once again it's page 714

In the US the Company is just 'Grainger' do a search for the catolog online. (My search keeps pulling up the Canadian sites)

ETA: fixed link. http://www.grainger.com/

They also stock a large variety of tools and just about everything you may need for making tools.

Hope this helps you get started on some home brewing.

Doogs, in the US it's just Grainger.

Re: Raw materials, Canada and US

I worked at my college and they bought just about everything through Grainger. 24 Duracell AA batteries would cost Joe customer 15 bucks, the school paid 6.

Wow, that's cheaper than Costco. So all I gotta do is make my own college eh?

I already have a business account at Grainger and I haven't seen the good deals yet

That explains my search failure. Fixed it.

Re: Raw materials, Canada and US

Grainger's prices are painful if you aren't connected to an account with a sales rep. Local sources will probably be cheapest. I'm lazy. Unless it is some very common thing like simple rolled gauge steel I buy from mcmaster. Their prices are reasonable enough and they have nearly everything. Last time it worked out to something like $1.20 per pick (steel, sandpaper, polishing compound, wheel wear sans handles). Odd that they don't list shipping costs but it has never been over 6 dollars. Odd thing about them. If I order something by 8 in the morning, I usually get it in the afternoon. Kinda scary.
