Default McMaster is instant fulfillment!

I ordered a pair of Imperial model IE-180 wire cutters late on the 12th,
and they arrived just now. Hot damn, that's just about instantaneous...
Must have shipped from Elmhurst.

Good for you!
I have to order from MSC by 10:30 am to get that service here in
western WI.

Either way, it sure beats driving 40 or 50 miles one way to get something.

I noticed my McMaster shipments to work are coming Fedex instead of UPS. Now I'm getting
most things overnight.

Down in the Wisconsin tropical zone, near where I-90 crosses into Illinois.

I get stuff from Grainger and McMaster the SAME day! Beat that! And,
Grainger will open-up for me 24/7 for $50 fee. I've had to get parts in the
middle of the night on occasion and the $50 was nowhere near the cost of the
down-time.

I wish that there is a way to convince them to sell to Canadians. They
stopped because "there was too much hassle with customs" Business must be
good.
