I need to get a dozen or more traffic cones for an upcoming Show (Sept 18). Any idea who carries traffic cones? Lowes? Home Depot? Wallymart?

You need to go to a business that sells construction safety equipment. Search yellow pages "Safety Equipment".

I've noticed the State Police usually carry a wide selection. They typically will have several models on display at traffic accidents. :p

If you have time to order, try Galls .
Home Depot may carry them but I don't remember ever seeing them.
I also did a Google search and came up with this web page

I found them in Grainger. try www.grainger.com
My book is a couple years old so the price may have changed but in this book the 18" is $6.42 and up to 36" for $14.90

You know about a couple years back we needed some for a car show. First off, I was completely joking around but I decided to ask CAL Trans. It's California's highway improvement slow poke workers. So I asked one guy and he gave them to me, we about a dozen, he said that they have thousands to choose from.

There is no offense to Cal Trans workers but it seems they take forever to get a freeway put up behind your house. Waking up at 6am every morinng to sound of jack hammer and guys talking about what to eat at lunch.

If your local SCCA region has a Solo2 program (and doesn't have an event that weekend) you might be able to borrow some.

You may be able to rent some, but my guess is that you could borrow some from a local paving contractor or surveyor (I have 3 myself). If that doesn't work, you can order some from the surveying supply place that I use Hays Instrument Co.

They have 12" cones for 4.60 each, 18" cones for 6.97 each, or 28" cones for 11.86 each.

Check underneath what used to be MY new truck, now my 16 yr old daughter's truck. There is a good selection of interesting items. :eek:

Home Depot and Lowes carry the small ones you also may want to try a full service (real) hardware store.

I purchased all mine for 2 of my parking operations from a local hardware store. 3 foot orange cones sold for about $9 each.

Good luck.

Got some at Home Depot last X-mas. They were in the hardware aisle, near the mailboxes and garage door repair stuff. . .

Thanks for the HD tip. They weren't listed on line.

Amazing how expensive simple molded plastic thingies are: $8-14 each for 24" ones, and big bucks for higher cones.

Yeah, I thought about swiping them from various sites around town...heh heh....
