Sources for Parts:
As of February 9, 2010 all parts in the strip cutter plans were available locally and online from Lowes (www.lowes.com).
Most parts are available from any hardware store. The spacers (slider guides) availability (if you do not have access to a Lowes) are Hillman Group part number 59657-G. Their phone number is 1-800-800-4900.
McMaster-Carr (www.mcmaster.com) offers an alternatie spacer that should work - but has not been tested and is priced significantly higher than the Hillman spacers. Search for part number 92415A156 on the McMaster site.
If you use the McMaster spacers - or find another workable alternative - please send us an email (selelct the "Contact" link from the "About Us" menu above) letting us know so we can share the information with others.
