Ax-Man Surplus Stores

I moved from Minneapolis a few years ago and miss this store so much. They resell industrial parts, wheels, motors, speakers, fabric, foam, biohazard suits, and just about anything you can use to make. As you walk through Ax-Man you'll notice large motorized moving displays with baby doll parts and humorous descriptions accompanying their products. I bought some beautiful, large Hollywood-style metal film canisters there and sanded them down to make a portfolio case. Residents of the Twin Cities, take note.
