Surplus Shed (http://www.surplusshed.com) is having a 40% off sale on everything, and shipping is still just $6 for any order. I ordered a 25 mm micrometer for $14 and some ball bearing drawer slides $10/pair. Also I am getting some optical glass flats that might work for tramming my mill and also as a "poor man's surface table". One of them is a 50mm square that is 1/10 wave, which means it is flat within 63 nanometers. That is about 0.000063 mm or 2.48 micro-inches or 0.0000025". Almost as flat as Kansas! :rolleyes:

The prices shown above were before the discount.

The code is SS141014

Previously I bought a bunch of gears, sprockets, and belts, as well as some 0.007" shim washers for cheap. It's fun to browse through their stuff, and I put a lot of things in my "wish list" including some that are out of stock. Beware that your shopping cart may disappear if you go away and come back later, but the wish list seems to stay (if you set up an account).
