I wanted to order a quench oil found the site it had the product and info and it took a month to find out they don't stock it in Canada even though it is on the Canadian site. Now when I mentioned ordering in bulk for resale the story changed not only did they have it in stock they quoted me shipping and cost for a 1,000 gallons within 15 minutes. When I mentioned getting pallets of 5 gallon pails I was informed they don't deal with small time customers because they are a waste of money. To go any further with them they suggested they would be willing to help only if I took 1,000 gallons a month minimum and they would prefer a larger order. Two hints how far that went Most of what I get is supplied in units of 100 and 1000, The up side is I have a pretty awesome shelf of hardware for projects but ten times more frustrating when I have three types of rivet and none are the right size My latest project is getting in Bonded Nylon thread for the sewing machine in 1 pound spools and building a rack too hold the spools behind the sewing machine, no more swapping spools for this old guy. Best part was finding out a supplier carries the tiger thread for hand sewing. This thread is the best going and looks real nice, also handy for small projects when a smaller thread is needed. As far as steel goes if you want a good price for resale you buy a coil. you want a chuckle look up a coil weight for 0.06" stainless steel and length of material $40,000.00 each USD . I do have some other companies but all similar which is why places like the New Jersey Steel Baron exist they process the plates and coils down to manageable sizes. When I get the minimum order saved up I might get in a stainless or two or even carbon steels. This has been a fun adventure and I found out one wholesaler everyone loves is a disguise for a retail shop and prices to match but I found their suppliers when they reused a box on my order.
