Ah yes, and the best place to go is Soko Hardware. I know the Center well. Soko Hardware had one. They wanted $80.00 for it. When I said okay, the woman looked surprised that I'd pay that much for it and then said "Oh, we can't sell you that one, we use it and it is our last one." "Can I order another one?" I asked. "No." she said.
Somehow I think they might have thought I was going to do something horribly inappropriate with it like use it as an ashtray or something.
Thanks for the suggestion though. It would normally lead me to all sorts of goodies.
