    Rack and Pinion Supplier to UK?

    Was wondering if anyone knew of a supplier of rack and pinion gearing that delivers to the UK or is in the UK. Have just tried to get some from McMaster-Carr and they no longer ship over here.
    Thanks for any help.

    You might try Small Parts co in Florida. I know they have a good selection of bits but know nothing of their shipping policies

    I have seen them in online hobby shops and Maplin do nylon ones. I have also seen them in the RS (www.rswww.com) catalogue (and if RS have them, Farnell will probably too).

    Have never actually bought any though...

    Try http://www.hpcgears.com in Chesterfield (+44 (0) 1246 268080). Their assortment is astonishing and their prices are not too scary!

    Thanks for the link. This is something I have been looking for too.
    I actually made some racks myself out of white perspex using our laser cutter at work. They look a bit like the Delrin parts in the HPC catalogue (but mine are probably not as strong!).
