in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

And any size of o-ring that you'd ever imagine. I spent probably around 3 hours with my dad driving around from place to place trying to find 3" o-rings. We never did. Then I went on to mcmaster and they have tons of different kinds.

I've only used McMaster once and I have to say that they did a great job. My order got to me in only 1 and 1/2 days, which is fast shipping. Plus, McMaster is the only place that I know of that carries 2 and 1/2 inch PVC pipe and fittings. Without McMaster I wouldn't have a tennis ball cannon.

Whoops I forgot that Spudtech sold them!

Now I remember... I bought mine from McMaster and not Spudtech because Spudtech didn't have the 2 and 1/2 to 1 inch reducing bushing that I needed, and I wanted to order from only one site.

Anyway, although Spudtech had the 2 and 1/2 inch pipe, I would still buy from McMaster again because of the great service that I received the first time.

If it influences any of you, I buy from McMaster on a regular basis. Usually weekly or more. They have all sorts of parts that cannot be found at hardware stores. And a lot of stuf is much cheaper.

Edit, dammit Frank, another kicked topic. You tricked me this time though...

Well, you could also try Grainger industrial. They rely on on "counter" sales for their business, are cheap, and extremely helpful. Parker-Hannifen can also help you with QEVs at a rather cheap rate.
