Default McMaster-Carr FTW.

I'm not usually one to go all fanboy about vendors, but McMaster-Carr is just awesome. I ordered 3 sets of brass QDs and a square foot of 30/30 SS mesh yesterday morning and I'll be damned if they didn't arrive 10 minutes ago. Just awesome.

Yeah those guys are killer with their shipping. If I put in an order before 3pm, it usually gets shipped out that day...good stuff.

+1. Amazing how efficient their operations are. I don't get the sense they're the lowest-cost provider, but if you NEED something in a hurry, they get it out! I'm kinda amazed they even deal with our dinky little orders, I've got to imagine that 99.99% of their business is much larger business-to-business transactions.

Yeah, they're spendy on some things that could be easily picked up at the big box home improvement store of your choice; but for those harder-to-find items, they're the mutt's nuts.

once my order came overnight, just because it was close by. I was all pissed off when I found it was short two QD parts. Later that same day they arrived shipped from another location.

ordered at noon day 1,
get most of it morning day 2,
get rest of it evening day 2.

fast.

Could we get part numbers on the QD's? They sure look nice.

You going to make a false bottom? Interested in the SS Mesh also.

I've been to a warehouse and there's all kinds of order picking automation going on there. Robots and such.
