    I'm really irritated at their response. It's like they didn't even try. If the parts were national security sensitive parts, I could see not wanting them to end up elsewhere, but thrust bearings and washers? Come on! And it's not like Norway is a third world country.

    I checked with a local bearing sales store here in Norway. They want $47 for the 6 pieces! Can anyone stateside help me get some at a more reasonable price and send them to me?

    Hi Morten,

    Try this guy, says ships to US "and many other countries". Pretty reasonable, around $10. I'm not 100% sure about the washer thickness, but you could check on that too.

    Yea, it's a little steep. Can't weigh very much. $3-5 in actual postage?

    I ship stuff to Norway all the time, if you need my help i'd be glad to help.
    I need another set anyway, worked great on the e12s, need them for the egt120 now, but are the ebay ones the right ones? They claim to be thicker than the mcmaster ones, but not sure what measurement means what after only a quick glance.
    Also trying to get a few sets of those square orings from Nick to help seal them.

    It would be great if you could help. The mcmaster ones are thinner, and cheaper (i think). I don't know how much space there is on the spindle, maybe enough for the thicker ones.

    I placed an order from mcmaster for the bearings, still waiting to hear from Nick about the orings.
