Any one have a good source to buy ecentric spacers for cheap?
Seeing these eccentric nuts have been designed for use with Makerslide based constructions, I doubt you’ll get them anywhere but from Inventables.
If you had a lathe and lots of free time, you could always make your own.
I have found them elsewhere…just not much cheaper than inventables.

Misumi sells eccentric bushings: http://us.misumi-ec.com/vona2/detail/110300424410/ and if one is inclined one can make one’s own: http://www.cnczone.com/forums/cnc-router-parts/208920-diy-eccentric-spacers-less-40c.html
if only i had free reign on the machines I use at work…I would have some done in about an hour…lol
I like this approach! I’ve just bought a 4 jaw chuck for the lathe which will be more accurate than the drill press. Another project…
Here you could order also.
Where I got my last batch:
I stand corrected! I really didn’t think that these would be available from an alternative manufacturer.
I have enougheccentric spacers/nuts to last me but what I really need are more t-nuts.
Those are cheap on ebay…lol
Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/161658445382
Doesn’t ship to Australia…
But I found a seller on Banggood that does. 50 on the way $US6.
I got mine here because they are quite a bit more robust than the originals.
