    Hardware

    Where does everyone buy their hardware pieces. I am looking to get a bunch of hex standoffs and screws for my robot build. I wanted to know if anyone had a good place to buy a whole bunch of them, for not a terribly large amount of money. I know about Jameco, and was about to order there, but thought maybe someone knew a better place.

    We use Mcmaster all the time. They might even be cheaper.
    Plus they have one of the best search features to find what your looking for aswell.

    McMaster is awesome but I found the other day that stand-offs were cheaper at digikey. Make sure to check prices at both places before committing to an order.
