    Hi Folks

    I am considering becoming a distributor of Openbuilds parts in Canada and opening up an online store that's based in the Toronto Area.

    I would like to know if this would be a valuable resource for people in Canada.We have a strong maker community and I know that dealing with purchases from the United States with Customs Duty can be a real pain and having a more local source for this great hardware could be very convenient. I would appreciate your thoughts.

    Thanks
    Adam

    haven't been able to find a list of distributors.. in the FAQ it just takes you to a contact form to become one.

    I am finding it extremely difficult to source parts here in Canada to build an OX like CNC.

    I agree completely. that is why we are slowly building our inventory so Canadians have a place to shop and not worry about shipping over the border and duty.
    Shameless Plug. :D checkout www.makerparts.ca
