If I was stuck on an deserted island with one catalog, and UPS could do air
drops, the McMaster catalog is the one I'd pick. Their paper catalog runs
to 3500+ pages (7.5 pounds), their nearest warehouse to me is 120 miles
away, and I can place an order for darn-near anything at 8 PM one night and
have it in my hands by noon the next day with ground shipping.
My last order of 13 items included case-hardened flat washers for milling
machine clamps, a threaded ball valve, a corner-rounding end mill, a tube
of acrylic cement, one foot of 2-inch by 5-inch rectangular aluminum tube,
a needle file, and a lithium battery. Everything was in stock, and they
arrived the next day all in the same box. I'll be ordering several types
of foam rubber to restore my HP 7925 disc drive shortly (they list a dozen
pages of foam rubbers). My experience with them over a number of years has
been uniformly excellent.
Their warehouse must be something else (unless there is more call for
corner-rounding end mills and rectangular tubing than I imagine :-).
