Howdy,

Found a great deal on an Epiphone mb250 here locally, would like to install spikes, kinda having a hard time wanting to order 50 of them knowing I won’t use but 5 of them.

Anyone know of anywhere in Phoenix that sells them?

Thanks,
Jethro

hi Jethro,
I would think any model railroad/hobby shop should be able to help you out with any amount you wish to buy.

Offer to pay postage and someone on the BHO will send you some for free.
Has worked for me.

Check with Bob Makula on this forum. He sells them for a few bucks. Be careful installing them - I use a pin vise from Hobby Lobby. Take your time.

I just got 800 of them - I'd be willing to part with a few on these terms.  PM me.

HA HA, I had to buy the same bag of 800. There was also a bag of 12,000 at the store but I declined.

I'm in Phoenix, but I prefer meeting people if I'm doing shop services.

You have to be careful with the hobby lobby because they have different length spikes that now mount into styrofoam track bed.
I even spoke with the manager about banjo makers using these.

He could have care less, mostly watching the shoplifters. 5 spikes is adventurous. Contact me if you like.
