Ottawa area stores - MasonJar - 08-11-2009

In Ottawa (and other locations no doubt) you have your choice of a few "general purpose" stores where you may find discount tools, parts, and other interesting project materials.

Princess Auto is a chain of Canadian stores that sells lots of things that may be of use - small clamps, hand tools like pliers, small hammers, and so on. But their most interesting stuff is "Surplus" and includes things like small electric motors, battery holders, and plastic boxes.

Busy Bee Tools is a similar outfit. They have similar items, although their power tools especially are more expensive, but that's because they carry brand names. They are also heavy on the tool side, not as much on the project supply side.
