JK, he's a moron and a troll. Consider his ad-hominem attacks on anyone
who suggested it might not be the problem he cites.
McMaster is very, very (even VERY) customer-centric, even if they're a
little more expensive than the other big suppliers. They would _not_
allow a simple problem like that to shy customers away.
But John Doe is in his own little world of believing they're attacking
Just watch his responses to this thread.
I provided an error message that should make my point perfectly

If you don't believe it, try asking them.
Otherwise, go fuck yourself.

possibilities, because you're - well - convinced you're perfect, and the

What? Explaining what the problems might be? You certainly haven't done
that yet, NOR reacted to any suggestions... so, I guess by your definition,
you're not a troll.
There are other definitions that explain refusal to accept suggestions and
possible solutions better, but many of them include incarceration in a
mental health institution.
I complement you Sir! After days and days and multitudes of rhetoric
you have... at last... hit on the answer to your problems.
(although, I might add that most of the denizens here would probably
have hit on the solution long before they posted the first message...)
Just for the heck, I went to the site, generated a username and password
and ordered an extension cord I need. There were absolutely no problems
doing it, and I like the site. Maybe your or their panties were in a knot

No, there is a point. McMaster-Carr, although some valid criticisms can
(and have) been made against them, is still one of the best places to
shop online. If you're looking for something noticeably *better* you
are unlikely to find it. MSC and Grainger, already mentioned in this
thread, are their main competitors. Aside from them, nobody has the
scope of products that they do, although there are some very good online
tool and hardware stores, there's no "one stop shopping" that I'm aware
of outside of those Big Three.

Agreed, but you get what you pay for. I'll just have to take that
