Where do I buy big cable ties?

  1. I'm building a pedalboard in a somewhat unconventional way: I bought a baking rack and am going to cable-tie my stompboxes to it, like I once saw an effects-happy guitarist do.

    Anyhow, where should I go to get long (1' or longer) cable ties? My Variwah and Intelliphase will need especially long ones.
  2. Try auto suppliers.. you know the places u buy all your car accessaries from? And also mechanical parts.. We have places like Auto Barn, Rocca Bro's, Repco etc.

    Electronics stores sell them. Radio Shack might (for the americans), i know the aussie places like Dick Smith Electronics and JayCar Electronics sell all kinds.

    Just mentioning what you probably already know: You can put cable ties together to increase thier length.

    I tried to PM you but your mailbox is full. Clean up slacker!

    Anyway, if you can't find long ones I have a ton of them from data gear installation years ago. Shoot me a PM and I'll send you some.

    I sell them thru my other business.
    I'll get you some too, if you still need them.
