Linear actuator on the web

Postby bitternboy » Thu Sep 08, 2011 8:41 pm

Just wondering if anyone knew if this part was available from a uk or European site.

Before you criticize another person, first walk a mile in their shoes. Then, when you critisize them, you'll be a mile away and have their shoes.

Well, as I have already found, ordering from the US is incredibly expensive without using tracking and with goods worth more than $100 I would prefer to have this as if it got lost then I'm not going to get my money back. With tracking/insurance it costs almost as much to send the thing as the thing actually costs and that's quite a lot. You see my problem...

Quite. The Pololu one is 60ish pounds which I think is fine and a mounting bracket is available which makes things much simpler.
