Tks, Charles. I'm in Ottawa. I do have a US mailing address in Ogdensburg NY, about an hour from me, but these days, of course, it is off limits.
I'm wondering if Elaire is shut down or something. I was exchanging email with them, and seemed to be getting to where I could place an order for my stuff and for 3 other friends. As soon as I mentioned shipping and couriers, all communication stopped. I've tried email and voicemail. I'm looking into UK suppliers now. Shipping is a bit much, though. Makita Canada does not carry them, and they've told me that there is not enough demand for them to bring them in from Makita International. Robotshop in Quebec is very good, but they only stock the imperial measurement collets. So much for Canada being on the metric system, eh? :-)
Happy Canada Day, Charles.
