    Does anyone know where I can find 8mm ACMU nut block (http://openbuildspartstore.com/8mm-lead-acme-nut-block/) that will ship to Canada (or US, I'll pick it up)?? I need 6 pieces of this rare animal...

    I have spent ton of money to buy all parts I need for my build just to realize that this ACME nut block is very rare and prohibited for export.
    I'm (half-)joking about export but not about rareness.

    The only two places I managed to find this nut are in Korea (http://www.openbuildskorea.com/8mm-acme-nut-block/) and New Zeland (http://www.cnckits.co.nz/shop/hardware/8mm-acme-nut-block/) but they don't ship to Canada or US.
    These guys: http://openlab.com.au/shop/8mm-acme-nut-block/ ship to US but won't let me enter Canadian billing address AND they only have 3 nuts left (haha).

    Other stores/web sites are out of stock for at least the past 3 weeks:
    - http://ooznest.co.uk/ACME-Nut-Block
    - http://vslot-europe.com/index.php?id_product=59&controller=product
    - http://openbuildspartstore.com/8mm-lead-acme-nut-block/
    - and some others, can't find link right now...

    Any help appreciated....

    Thanks for the suggestion pmany!

    Anyhow, these guys (http://www.smw3d.com/) have a few of those nuts available, I guess, there were no complaints at the checkout about them being out of stock.
    I should get them in a week or so, unless their website is not up to date when it comes to parts availability (it happens to be the case from time to time with online shopping...)

    Now I should be able to put something together before Christmas.
    Wooo-hooo!
    :)
