They seem to have a very large collection of very little things I have been having trouble sourcing.. and the prices seem VERY good (much of their hobby line seems to be discontinued lines)..

Anyone ever bought from them before? If so, are they any good?

Have bought from them a few times - sometimes a long wait is involved. One article still hadn't arrived after months so I cancelled the order and was given a refund. I'd buy from them again.

I did a few years ago, but as I recall they were obscenely expensive. Whatever you are after, you’ll find it on eBay with a bit of searching for a fraction of the price.

I just put an order through McMaster Carr yesterday. Getting a whole slew of Aluminium threaded rods, bolts, and nuts. I'm sick of giving Bunnings a small fortune for Stainless hardware that's 3x the weight of Aluminium.
