First of all I would like to thank you who ever validated me to be on this awesome forum (: . I didn't know which section this should be in so change it to the right section if wrong please.Anyways , i would like to say that being in Canada stinks ( Well actually not really, its just shipping from United States is gay. ) About 3 days ago ( Saturday) i ordered some Foam Backer Rod from Best Materials in a 800 ft roll. I also ordered felt discs and 8-32 washers from McMaster - Carr, to make some Captain Slug darts. So far they haven't sent me anything bad about the shipment. Then came the bad part. This morning McMaster - Carr sent me an email saying :


Thank you for your order. Unfortunately, due to the ever increasing complexity of United States export regulations, McMaster-Carr will only process orders from a few long-established customers in Canada. We sincerely regret any inconvenience this causes you.

Thank you,

So i pretty much have 800 ft of foam . I was wondering was there anybody who lives in Canada and had this problem?
If so please tell me , i don't want to have 800 ft of foam for nothing .
Thank you very much. :rolleyes:

Yeah, Mcmaster-carr does not ship to Canada. If you need stuff from them, someone in the US has to buy it and ship it to you.

McMaster-Carr won't ship anything outside of the United States unless you have an open account and you've been ordering from them for quite a while.
This is something you could have asked them before ordering.

To get products from them you'd have to go through a third party. Either something willing to forward the items, or someone who works for a company in Canada that has an open account with McMaster-Carr.

I was pretty stupid to not find out if they ship to Canada or not before I ordered. ):
I guess i will ask my cousin if he can ship it to me.
By the way , I love your work :rolleyes:
Thank you for your time.

You could have it sent to me, Seattle is pretty close to Canada. Shipping could be cheaper then sending it californi-way.

Damn it Foamfoot. Why is it that you kill every good topic with a retarded response a few days late.
