A few posts mention that one can get a better selection and iirc
sometimes better quality at an electrical supply house rather than a
consumer hardware store (at least HD, and maybe Ace.)
But I wonder what you all think about buying auto parts, the kind that
would be behind the counter at Advance or Pep Boys, at one of those
consumer chain stores versus buying at an autoparts store that garages
use. One is affiliated with PAPA and one with PABA, and they have few
self-service items, just things in boxes with part numbers that have
to be looked up in a book or computer. They both sell retail, but
that's not their focus like Pep Boys.
Quality, price, other variables?
What I need varies from time to time. This time it is only brake pads
and one rotor. (Yes, they would turn it for less than selling it, but
I want to have it when I take apart the brakes so I can get it back
together quickly. and I only have one car.)
