When I was in college some friends got me into making chianmaille.  It was heaps of fun to do, and I loved having pieces to mess with after.  Unfortunately life gets in the way, and a ton of supplies and tools somehow vanished in a couple of different moves. 

Thanks to one of the paintball guys, my interest is piqued again about working chainmaille.  I started looking on a couple places to order supplies (I'd rather not cut my own rings, I want something to put off to the side and fiddle with during work, and that might be a bit much), and found out The Ring Lord has the most awesome looking scales to work with!
Unfortunately they also want to bend me over when it comes to shipping to Alaska.   Shocked 

Has anyone out there found another place that supplies the scales like The Ring Lord?  This is the type I am interested in: http://theringlord.com/cart/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=84&cat=Scales&websess=69016513860179
I have looked all over, but only found other suppliers of rings and things so far.  Blue Buddha seems pretty decent price wise for rings to play with, as their shipping direct to AK makes them cheaper per ring than The Ring Lord. 

Am I doomed to have them ship to Indiana, for one of my friends to do me a huge favor and reship via flat rate priority to save money?  Or will this adventure end up with me in the sheet metal shop punching and bending my own sheets? 

Thank you very much!

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
