Hi Robert,



We ship to Canada via Purolator, UPS, FedEx, or DHL to Canada and do not use USPS.



However, due to the cost and complexity of shipping our products to Canada, we are only able to accept orders from businesses and schools.

McMaster Carr is a convenient website to find components and I use them quite often for work (I do machine design) as they are convenient and have cad files for a lot of their products. They have list prices but are priced in U.S. dollars. They are an industrial supply source that resell components from the original manufacturer. Most of these components can also be found at your local industrial supply house. There are a lot of Canadian suppliers i.e. Fastenal, Canadian Bearings, Century Tool to source components. It is so much easier today to find stuff with the internet.

Anything in particular you are trying to find?

I like how everyone tends to use the same excuses for not shipping into Canada, cost and difficulty. For small parts the cost is close to the same or slightly higher than shipping inside the US and how difficult is it to fill out a short form? I’ve had numerous people refuse to ship to Canada for those reasons and still demanded that I ship to the US despite facing the same issues.

For machine screws I found Canada bolts good to deal with

I rarely order from the USA now, between the lazy , excuse making jacked shipping BS they pull and the real life Handmaids Tale politics going on there I have no interest in supporting them anymore. I have found lots of UK and euro sources for things.

I ordered some washers and shims from them and they cancelled my order and sent me the same email. I've had such trouble trying to source things in Canada from places like Fastenal or Brafasco it drives me nuts.

For anyone looking for O-rings of any particular size for breech seals etc, try orings and more. I've ordered from them a couple of times. Their prices beat anything in Canada and they ship very quickly.
