    How long does it take for out of stock items to return? For example:

    Eccentric Spacers 1/4" ?

    As Chad pointed out, you can usually find alternative suppliers for those type of items. My bigger concern at this point is extrusions. They are having a very hard time keeping the 500mm lengths in stock in any size.

    brbubba, the 500mm lengths were a recent addition to the parts store and apparently they grossly underestimated their popularity. You can be assured they won't make the same mistake with the next mill run.

    Thanks guys for all the pointers to other suppliers. Just to report

    http://www.smw3d.com/

    Only has QTY (2) in stock. I need more than that so I probably will look else where. (Keep looking)

    If you find a stock of them, please let me know. They are one of the few remaining items I need.

    their website doesn't not disclose if these are the 1/4" spacer either....

    Openbuild put STOCK back up, but when I try to order them you are only allowed QTY (2)....

    Confirmed by Colin, they have 1/4" by the thousands instock!!!

    I'm not 100% sure what they are measuring, but when I measure the spacer (Not including the part that sits inside the wood or metal part) it measures 6.4-6.45mm which is right about .250" (1/4")
    I have a few thousand in stock so I should have plenty.

    Ratrig and CNC Kits claim to have the standard openbuilds 20 tooth model in stock. SPD-SI also has a 20 tooth model but not sure if it is the same.

    Rick, thanks for the links. Those off shore stores are expensive. and when they are not, the shipping is more than the parts.
