    Hello,

    Does anyone know a good source for strain gages ?

    I just want a strain gage and not the electronics
    everyone tries to sell with it.

    I checked Google and could find only one supplier
    and the prices were all too high.

    I am experimenting with the idea of using a strain gage
    as a seismic sensor and need a cheap source of parts.
    Used parts are A-OK.

    I figure you might be able to simply support a mass
    upon a strain gage somehow then extract the signal
    down to the noise grass then look for seismic signals.

    Any ideas here are welcome.

    www.omega.com has the strain gages alone. Don't know how their pricing
    compares.. never bought any.
