Grainger is the hardware equivalent of an Office Depot and sells only to
businesses. You will have to pass yourself off as a business at least when
buying in person. It bills itself as selling "industrial and commercial
equipment and supplies."
Grainger has a huge catalog about 3" thick but it also comes in electronic
versions, including CD-ROM. To request the catalog, write:
333 Knightsbridge Parkway
Lincolnshire, IL 60069-3639
To place orders, call 1-800-323-0620
