McMaster-CARR

Placed an order at 10:30a yesterday for 7 lbs of rivet nuts, clamp-on collars, studs, taps, etc., and it is already sitting on my doorstep at home. All for $5.44 S&H.
How do they do it? You have to love this place.

Understood. Bonus is living 200 miles from the distro center in Horsham, PA. My point is you go to BoltDepot.com or similar and they slap a $10 S&H charge on a single washer and make you wait 5 days.

Weird, my first recent purchase I bought 4 grommets and it was spendy on the shipping and took days to process. Once shipped it was decent.

I do love their cheap ass shipping. Last order for some monster hose clamps (for my fuel tank) and new fuel line/hose was like $4 shipping.

I've told McMaster on more than one occasion that they have one of the best, if not the best eCommerce site I've used.
Living 5-10 minutes from a distribution center has me spoiled.
