Where to order threaded inserts

Hello to everybody,

McMaster does not want to sell to individuals, and I cannot find any other website or supplier which sells them. I need them for 1.25" round Aluminum tubing. Also if anybody have some extra, we can make a deal.

Thanks a lot, Zoran

I submitted an inquiry to McMaster-Carr regarding shipments to Canada. This is their response and explains your situation:

"Due to the complexity of U.S. export regulations, McMaster-Carr accepts international orders only from businesses. This decision also applies to orders shipping within the United States, because it is based on the final destination of the items. We cannot accept international orders that are for personal use."

You might try Dave Kriege at Obsession Telescopes. He sells some components for telescope making: http://obsessiontelescopes.com/ATM_parts/index.php If the inserts listed on this link are what you are looking for, they are $3 each. You would have to check with Dave regarding shipping costs, but he has always been reasonable when I have ordered stuff from him.

I found and ordered them from one industrial supplier from Kitchener , Ontario with excellent price, they sell pack of 20 for about 17 dollars.
