Stalin, glorious steel...

Ran over to West Valley Hobbies today to pick up some metal rod and tube stock for the prototype block lifter.  Unusually enough, I found exactly what I was looking for, the right material, the right dimensions.  As far as I can tell, they have the best selection of thin rod and wire stock in the Salt Lake Valley.  The staff was courteous, friendly and helpful.  I have all (almost all, I forgot to buy one particular diameter rod) the necessary metal to make the bushings, alignment rods and position catches on the prototype.
