OpenTip Crazy people

OK these folks are crazy..lol..on my cat furniture project thought about maybe getting some camlocs and dowels to hold the flat panels to the rails, this way I could ship them flat and let customer put it together real easy, you know the little quarter turn deal that pulls in the pin(dowel). found the perfect ones at a place called Opentip min order was 75, which is fine 75 cams 75 dowels is a good start just to check it out, total was $19.50 not bad, then I put in my zip and they wanted $33 to ship...what...these people are crazy for a hand full of screws that wgt less then a pound, man where are they shipping from, checked and they are Cambridge, MA, really Cambridge, MA to Arkansas for $33 no way, contacted them on live chat, after 20 mins they said we can do $11. I don't think so, anybody got another source for these cams and dowels that are dealing with reality a little better.

I dunno, might try here
http://www.wwhardware.com/fasteners-...ers/connectors
I looked and their shipping didn't seem outrageous. Not sure about there prices as I don't usually shop for that stuff.

I like it a lot. You know precisely what your talking about exactly where other people are coming from on this issue.
