Does anyone know where I can order the Aluminum U Tube Extrusion Parallax uses in their MoBo Panel Kit #28303. The Spinneret board slides into it perfectly but the tube in the kit is not long enough. The Kit's tube is only 2.75" long and it needs to 4" for my project. I would like to buy just the tube i can manufacture the ends and the face. Thanks.

I think that this has been mentioned somewhere in the Spinneret forums, but I can't seem to find it. I was trying to find a case for mine too, but then i just ended up making one on my CNC machine. Maybe this can give you some ideas?

These picture were from my first test, and i have gotten the correct sized bolts now, but this should give you an idea.

It can't hurt to ask Parallax sales if they will accommodate you. I know this question has come up before regarding the Spinneret.

Hi JohnR2010-
We're actually working on a case for the Spinneret (it's on my list) - It's a couple weeks out, but in the mean time, contact Jim (in Sales) and he can get you set up with the extrusion piece.

Very clean I like it. My project has a 3 position rotary switch and a XBee Pro connected to the spinner so i have a bit more to cram in there. I like your acrylic top and bottom with the slot for the USB. We also have a CNC router (ShopBot!) and I’m going to use it to make an aluminum top that will slide into the ridges of the U Tube as well as the end pieces. Would love to hear more about your project.

Thanks Matt and Phil! I reached out to Ken Gracey last night and he said he will get me some custom lengths. I would still like to know who makes the tubes i wonder if they have other sizes (wider) that I could use in other projects.

The extrusions are not an off-the-shelf item but are custom-made just for Parallax.
