BoltDepot.com

I buy 10,000+ machine screws, washers and nuts from them a year.

Cheers,

Yeah, but without any good coffee stands around they're really not very dangerous. :D

Misumi, and still for a few days they have $150 free for first time customers! Just put "First150" in the special instructions box at the bottom of the order form.

Check it out:

I got a bunch of nuts and bolts along with a fair amount of extrusions with my $150, you do have to pay shipping though.

At one point after '08, our area (Elkhart specifically) had the highest unemployment rate in the country. The shop local, buy domestic, pay more to keep your neighbor's job mindset really set in and renewed some community pride in our part of the rust belt.

Jim i would love to support local business and all of the parts, lase cutting, and machined parts are sourced local even the shipping boxes are local if competitivevor slightly higher in cost
A quick look at msc website and a machine screw i can get from mcmaster carr or boltdepot is .015 and .013 cents each MSC wants $2.95 EACH....... yea that would kill my project.
