Thanks for all the tips.

I ended up registering, purchasing and paying online with "will call" for shipping. I was tempted by MCS, but what I wanted was too heavy and would have been a fortune to ship.

Walked in and picked up my order, no questions asked.

Slick and I got exactly what I wanted!

Thumbs down Grainger

My company used to do a LOT of business with Grainger. But they still didn't want to sell to individual employees who contacted them, and I refuse to beg anyone to take my money. I became familiar with MSC when I was in A&P school and introduced them to our company. We buy almost exclusively from MSC now. Great company.

I also use MSC often. They send out your order immediately. I have ordered as late as 3 pm and UPS is pulling in the driveway the next morning and this is with standard shipping. Grainger wake up,a sale is a sale.

Default Relationship with your Company

Grainger here in town has a relationship with employees of our company to be able to use them individually by just mentioning you are an employee. Of coarse I work for a major aircraft manufacture so that may have something to do with it.

Another way is to use your local FBO or A&P to buy the stuff for you. They sometimes even can get a discount.
