Hi Maufils,

I actually got my entropy from a place in the states and had it delivered to a parcel pick up company in Vermont. Unfortunately with the border closed this no longer works. The shop in the states is called Jamestown Distributors. Not sure if they ship to Canada but they are really easy to work with. Let me know if you find something closer as I will be starting up building again soon. Too many woodworking projects to get done first!
