Now that McMaster-Carr has such a great web site where you can order everything online, they've started sending me a new catalog every year.

I just discovered I have three old ones -

I'd be glad to send you one by UPS. It weighs in at 9 pounds in a box, so the UPS charge would be about ten bucks from California to the East coast.

SO, the first one who calls me at the shop today, Wednesday 2/16, can have last year's #110. (109 and 108 to the next two callers). Please don't call on Thurs or Fri, because I'm out of the shop. (I'll be back on Saturday, and then Monday through Wednesday next week.)

I can take a credit card number and ship it right out. Post office lines are really long in this town, so I'll need to go with our daily UPS pickup.

NOW let's not all jump at once, form a line ahead of me.

Seriously thanx for the offer, but with cable and the Internet paper catalogs are just so much burning material,a few more b.t.u.s

George -

Your catalog is on its way. Jeez, you're right about eBay, there are 25 listed there right now!

Just a note, my company had a mcmaster account and we order regularily. As a result they send us two or three catalogs a year. Anyone needing the old ones for the price of shipping shoot me an email at rsr911@neo.rr.com I've got about 3-4 I'm ready to through out.

They don't like Canadians enough to send catalogs. That's ok, I get better service from Mitsumi in Japan for less money and faster delivery, and they send the monster catalogs (Paper) and Cad files on CD/DVD every year (free) too...

Thrud. Do they have a website?

Thrud, who is Mitsumi?

Thrud, I think you have created a monster!
