They either have in stock, or can have it made, and they are willing to ship in smaller quantities, you don't have to commit to boxes of 50 or 100 like at a McMaster. Not sure if they have a minimum buy as I just always buy in bulk, so suggest asking that up front if anyone is looking for just a few pieces.
