    Talking Could you be as nuts as me?

    I was just searching through MacMasters Carr website for a specific washer to help Wesley and got wondering how great it would be to wander around their warehouse and pick around in the bins whatever you want.
    cheers

    What a good time that would be
    It could take months and I would need several trucks to take home all the trinkets.
    It could be worse You could be on fire.
    Stupid hurts.

    I come up with some of my best stuff poking through the parts aisle at Edmunds. (It's like the best hardware store around me)
    There's a hardware store in Amesbury Ma. that rocks but I don't remember there name.

    you guys would get a kick out of the salvage place I visited twice.
    Build it Green in Astoria NY.
    Its just a huge warehouse with stuff crammed in every square inch.
    I once just spent time looking at all the pieces of assorted hardware, handles, hinges,doors, windows, tables, chandeliers, piping, etc.
    I went looking for lumber only, didnt find what I wanted.
    But they have everything, all used or recovered, but interesting for sure.
