YOU have been giving them away, I just gave away my new one! Thought I would not need it anymore since I am retired and have them online when I do need something. I had two 112s that I gave away about a month ago.

My old one won't last long. Those things are like gold.
We probably tossed away about 500 lbs. of those catalogs away Monday. The new #113 came.

Grainger is another good company to order from, similar to McMaster-Carr. I've used both throughout my USAF career. They are mainly there for industrial customers who need things NOW. The little guys get the benefit of being treated the same as a big customer. That's a great side benefit!! How many other companys treat a guy who buys $20 of parts every couple years the same as a guy who buys $20,000 a year?

Grainger is great - except when the local store told me 'Wholesale or No sale' at which time I reminded them on my way out the door that McMaster-Carr only took a day longer. Depends on your local store for individuals.

While I like Grainger, they don't have the industrial material selection like Mcmaster-Carr does...I've used both for over 25 years and they are both great. I'm in the SF bay Area and order from Mcmaster-Carr out of So Cal, If I place the order before noon, it will be here UPS around 10:30am the next morning....now that is fast....

Yep, great people to work with. I ordered some spherical ends to make a throttle linkag. Parts came very quick.

My catalog is ancient #104, maybe I can buy a new one from them since I don't order much.
My experience has been positive, and as mentioned they have about everything.
