Hi, fellow bongofishers. For those of you out there still doing this and finding it hard for certain parts, i.e. FFC extensions and such, or if you're in the US and cheaper shipping works for you, try this site if you haven't heard of it.

http://www.quadrangleproducts.com/

You have to request a quote for the parts but it's pretty reasonable. I had a hard time finding 20-pin .5mm pitch FFCs + PCB on diy-beamer, but this site has them all and more. I finally get to start my build as soon as I can do some testing!

m33ch,
Were you able to get the PCB from quadrangle as well? I too am looking for a 20pin .5pitch extension kit, but I can't see any pcb's on their site
Thanks

I see you found it already, but yea, the PCB is called the Dual ZIF connector on their site. Works the same way obviously, but much more fragile than DIY-Beamer's version, it seems. Just remember when looking, scroll down. They don't come in sets. As I mentioned in your post, choto, they do a request for quote kind of sale. All parts must be found manually and requested for.

Thanks for telling us about the name -- I've been searching for it many times without finding anything!!

The exact line is (found with a search):

QD7018-20C    Dual ZIF Adapter Board 0.5MM, 20 Conductors

When somebody has a price, it would be nice to tell us.  

EDIT: OK, m33ch you answered about the price of your FFC cable and this board "combo" in the other thread: http://forum.bongofish.co.uk/index.php?topic=1570.msg10828#msg10828 :
Quote from: m33ch
My FFC/PCB cost roughly $16-17 before shipping
