WTB flared ports in Canada?

Parts Express wants $5 to ship a $13 Aero port up here!?!
Anyone have a Canadian source for good quality flared ports?
TIA!

$5 shipping really is nothing.

Thanks, but that's $5 for handling, as well as the shipping mode of your choice.

what size are you looking for?
I seem to remember a while ago, there was a place out of BC, like Chilliwack IIRC that was stocking and selling

4" (by at least 12" not including flares)
35Hz tuning in a 1.79 ft^3 enclosure.

Now THAT's what I'm talking about- thanks bud! Thier shipping is a bit goofy in that they charge $10 for each piece, but their flared ports were much nicer than those from Solen, so it's all good.
Thanks again!

I received the port already, now just need the wood; woohoo!
Q- when calculating port length for a given tuning freq, (I need 12.5" of port) do I add the flares to that length or should they be considered part of that 12.5"??
TIA!
