    Anyone know where I can get quality split rings, either O or triangle (tho, the latter preferred). I found keyring.com has some smaller 9mm (or 12mm.. not really sure how small I can go, heh) O ones but I'm not sure how strong they are. Goal is for use on my e-m5, but potentially on my G3 or even something like a DSLR.

    nice, I didn't know they sold this stuff. I remember ordering pipes and gears from them for an intro engineering class in college, haha


    I should probably clarify I'd like not to spend more than $1/ea on them and far less if I have to go bulk =)

    Fishing tackle parts. Many suppliers, including Cabelas.com. The package (originally 144 pc.) I have is #7 size rings and was four or five bucks. If you want to send me a stamped self addressed envelope I will give you a few. I'll never use them up.

    I bet Gordy would sell one or two of them to you from his straps. Then again, oldracer's offer is pretty attractive :)
