    McMaster-Carr is not the brand name of the stuff they sell, they are like Grainger or Harbor Freight, just a dealer(for lack of better terminology). I've bought a few things from them, they have really good stuff, but a little pricey for me at times when I can get some stuff local.

    I have bought from them. They have a wherhouse near my house so I don't have to pay shipping. Some of the stuff they sell you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else and is often at a good price in compairson to some "specialty shop" that might have something similar. Some of the stuff they sell for way too much $$. Just do your homework.
