    Anyone have any idea on how long it takes the store to replenish their stocks. They are sold out of most major components you need to make a project. They have been sold of some stuff for a couple of weeks... I need a few more parts to finish my project but they are sold out.... That shouldn't really happen....ever.. well alone on as many of the products they are out of and some have been out of for sometime now.

    I am building this project to make money. If my machine was down and waiting for basic parts to be in stock for what, a week, 2 weeks, more... That just means I won't be building anymore projects out of your stuff if I can't count on their being stock to buy from, espically the basics, 8 mm screws, corner pieces, end caps, 90 deg angle connectors, rails. Their is no excuse for being out of these... just bad business.

    I know, it sucks waiting. I was waiting for some pulleys that were sold out everywhere except Europe but the shipping was more than the parts.

    You should check out mcmaster carr for the those things you listed. http://www.mcmaster.com/#t-slotted-framing/=vp1rk3 I just put in a big order for fasteners there last night for my build, including 8mm.

    Smw3d has the few parts I need and I was about to order but Holly Crap their shipping is outrageous!! They wanted $14.25 at the cheapest for just a couple of very small parts USPS and $22.50 for fedEx ground. The shipping on this shouldn't be more than $5-$6. So much for that. The other places are sold out and McMaster Carr wants 2x the price for everything.

    You might contact them about this as it may be a software glitch they are unaware of. I've seen it before with other new sites and when contacted it was immediately corrected.

    They don't have any lower cost options. No ups ground, no standard usps, all usps priority or ups 2nd day air. I think it is just what they offer.

    Just a heads up to let everyone know that this week a lot of the OpenBuilds Store stock will be completed and updated.
    We have been working hard to ensure that we will stay in stock of all of our parts and so we have many part stocks being updated throughout this week. Keep an eye out for them :)
    Thank you for your patience and support.
    We also have a few new parts to be unveiled as well ;)
