Where in Toronto can I find a 3.5" IDE to CF card adaptor?

I'm working on a project and I need a 3.5" IDE to CF card adaptor, like this one. I usually get this sort of stuff from ebay, but I'm all out and I don't want to wait for shipping. Does anybody know a store where I can go and pick a few up for about the same price?

Please be specific, if you can. The last time I went looking for nick nacks like this around College and Spadina I was largely unsuccessful.

I don't know for sure but if I were looking, I'd check Active Surplus on Queen West or Sonnam Computers on Spadina just north of College.

I'd try Supremetronic, which apparently relocated to the Home Hardware at 306 College Street.

Ya, I can't believe they moved to the Home Hardware, but anything that keeps them downtown is okay by me.

However, I don't think either Supremetronic or Active Surplus will be the right kind of place.. Canada Computers is probably a better bet, or Sonnam, they often have that kind of obscure computer item.

However however, I was thinking about doing a project with SSD using one of those adapters, so I have one lying around which I'd be happy to loan you for a few weeks while you get one delivered, or sell outright. Send me an email and we can talk.

Hey guys, thanks for the advice (and the offer!), but actually I was able to get one from a friend of mine yesterday, so I'm good for now. If anyone does know where to get one local though, please do post, I'd still really like to know.
