Places to buy a variety of industrial type equipment
I am doing some work on my house and wondering if I could get some suggestions on were to buy product. I am fairly handy and was hoping to avoid the "Big Box" stores. Can anyone suggest a company(s) to buy from?

Criteria - Quality / Industrial grade products and depedable service (If that exists)

Need a little bit of everything. Tools, Electrical, Door Hinges, Plumbing, some electrical, some HVAC, Paint supplies and other stuff that I am sure that I am not thinking about. I would appreciate any help from other DIYers

No shipping cost involved, or damaged shipment.
As far as tools go try Prices are good, most often free shipping and at the bottom of the posting there's coments about the tools from people who have bought them.
