McMaster-Carr is an absolutely incredible company. A little while back they built a new distribution center here in New Jersey, about 40 minutes away from me. I've been there many times, and it never fails to amaze me with its huge size, and dazzling efficiency.
McMaster-Carr sells all things mechanical. I'm talking about nuts and bolts and screws and washers. But also materials like Teflon and plastics and rope and bearings and every known kind of fastener. They have tools and motors and gearboxes. In short, thousands of things that ATM's and makers of any persuasion want and need. Their claim to fame is service. One time I ordered some goodies on the phone at 9 a.m., and they were delivered to my door that very afternoon! Regular orders always show up no later than the next day. Granted, they are in New Jersey, but their service is spectacular. The folks than work their telephones are perfect. And I can't remember even once being told they were out of any product. If you need 10 feet of 3/8" rubber sheeting, MC will have it on your doorstep the next day.
And if you want it even faster, place your order by phone, and tell them you'll pick it up at "Will Call." Drive on down to the HUGE building, walk in, and they'll have your order picked and packaged and ready for you within an hour or so. No problems, and never have I had an order messed up. This isn't like fast food where you need to count your hamburgers! Even with 510,000 products, they will get your order right every time, and it will always be in stock.
