Canada Post Update

Well unfortunately, The union of Canada Post employees has issued a 72 hour strike notice. Rotating job action could start Monday October 22nd if an agreement is not reached before then. We would like to note that during the last strike the overall impact to delivery times was minimal; we saw very minor delays across the system, with only select locations seeing job action on a given day.

If you prefer not to risk it (or need to guarantee delivery dates) we are able to ship with Purolator or FedEx. If you have an account, please include it in the customer notes section of the checkout when selecting the courier option. If you do not have an account, we will be in touch with a variety of options.

We will keep you posted on this as it develops!

New Product Roundup – October 7th to October 13th

Happy Saturday everyone! We are back with our New Product Roundup for October 6 – 13th. This week, everyone was a bit groggy from a Turkey hangover… but despite that, we have managed to get a bunch of new goodies added to the site. So what is new? Well, we have a DIY Generator Kit – this complete kit allows you to build your own hand powered generator (complete with tutorial!). There is also a new, smaller, pack of low cost alligator clips, and a new miniature On/Off Rocker Switch. Finally, we went a bit Third Hand crazy this week: the coolant tubes and alligator parts kits used to add additional arms to the SparkFun Third Hand Kit are now available (and the SparkFun Third Hand Kit is back in stock as well).
