somehow they just knew...
Got my wheels and axles today. Will also be using a couple of the fiberglass rods as structural framing. Finally settled on a metal order for the rest of the rig from my favorite one stop shop for metal bits in just about any type, size, or quantity - Speedy Metals. I thought I had it figured out and placed an order late Friday afternoon with them, but changed my mind over the weekend. You have to call them to cancel an order and can only cancel bits they haven't cut yet. I frantically called them at 7 AM Monday and caught it before they had begun which was lucky because they are very "speedy" when you order from them - the order I placed today will most likely ship tomorrow. About an hour after confirming my order, I just happened to get one of those reminder emails from Amazon Prime - new recommendations for you based on your browsing history. Low and behold they had just the suggestion for the exact part I needed but forgot to order. 88,95,56,0,B
