So you link to a supplier that is more expensive? Wonderful way to make your case.

Still failing. $9.xx plus shipping is still more expensive than $20 shipped. No wonder you need an accountant.

Cad plating on those parts is definitely unnecessary. Also, cadmium is one of the most toxic metals around and it's use is seeing reductions in many aircraft design products, and even NASA applications. Not sold on the "its nicer because they're cad plated" claim.
