I know they have it but I really wasnt too excited about paying more shipping than the cost of the moulding. Thank you for your reply

If your area is as lacking in suppliers as mine, you will have to get it shipped.

That or find a shaper bit (router bit) that can cut a similar profile. I’ve had to resort to that on several occassions…I haven’t had to make rope moulding though – as I haven’t had a use for it – but you could run a beader bit along a piece and notch it to look like a rope….it is easier when making small mouldings to run a larger piece or material through the router bit and then cut off the size you need on the table saw or band saw.

Shipping cost is part of it if you can’t find something locally or make it yourself and it’s going to get worse as fuel prices rise.
I recently ordered a box of 1000 pocket screws…cost $19.00…shipping was $21.00 and that wasn’t overnight or priority. That was UPS standard shipping.

Some of our lumber and plywood vendors are now charging a $25.00 up to a $50.00 for a fuel surcharge on orders under $300.00.

Thank you all for the replies, I know I have to pay shipping and I may go with Baird Brothers but I was trying to exaust all my opitions first, I am very frugal these days as we all have to be given the gas prices we now have. Again thank you
