'[EE]: Volume pricing for small hardware'

Hey all,

What distributors do you use to find a wide hardware selection (stuff
like pretty small (#2-#4) thread-forming screws) with good pricing in
the ~5k quantity range?  I use McMaster quite a bit, but it seems like
there's gotta be a better way than buying 4000 #2x1/2" screws in 50
packs for 14 cents a piece, yet my usual places don't seem to be
working out very well in this quantity and size range.  Will McMaster
work on price at all in this quantity?

Thanks,
-Nick.

In Canada I've used Spaenaur before (http://www.spaenaur.com/) with
great results. Another source would be Fabory Metrican
(http://www.fabory.com).

I use Aaron's General Store online *a lot* for smaller quantities of all
types of fasteners. They have reasonable prices, fast shipping and almost
always have whatever fastener I need. Their prices on moderate volumes like
you are wanting are generally quite competitive.
