Guys, you really should not buy outdated rubbers. That's just not safe.

The More You Know

ridiculous shipping charges.

Don't buy. That stuff is pretty much unusable shortly after the "use by" date. Just threw out several packages recently.

@joebobster: The OP said that it is past it's "Sell by" date, not the the "Use by" date.
The website seems to confirm this.

Although Makershed doesn't have the greatest shipping prices they will definitely work with you if there's a problem. I've had a couple orders get denied by their fraud prevention software and they ended up shipping one of my orders free of charge for all the hassle. Free free. The whole order.

Yeah, hey, $7 shipping for a $5 product is pretty reasonable.

@izzyizzo: Well, their normal price is $18 + shipping.

For me, with tax and shipping, it comes down to this: $13 for slightly outdated vs. $21 for new. Double the quantity and it's: $22 for slightly outdated vs. $39 for new. Get crazy and make it an order of 50 and we're looking at: $270 for slightly outdated vs. $900 for new.

Pro Tip: If you're going to buy a bunch from Maker Shed it's cheaper to buy 10 than 8 due to discounted shipping (I assume for hitting $50.)

10 miles away from In-Store-Pick-up. Score!

For those who may be interested, here is an instructible on making your own Sugru substitute. http://mambohead.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/How-To-Make-Your-Own-Sugru-Substitute.pdf

I don't know how how well it would work, but might be worth a try.

I was dumb and fell for this. I bought 4 which cost me 32.00 with shipping and tax. Amazon has the 8 pack for $30 with free shipping and they aren't stale

@tute: I believe the deal is 8 packs for ~$13 shipped, no?

vote-for1vote-against

Dang! It's gone.. I was going to buy it last night but fell asleep apparently..

If anybody feels like selling me a pack of this, I'd be happy to take it off of your hands :) - never tried it before.

@tute: Hey! Win-win!: I'll buy one of 'em from you if it'll help ease your pain :) - seriously though, if you want to sell me a pack or two I'll buy 'em off ya.
(Never used the stuff so I'm kind of curious how it works)
