Grainger is a wholesaler and isn't supposed to sell so end consumers. That said, most business have accounts so I just added myself to my work's account (pay cash and work doesn't care).

drillspot.com has a lot of the grainger catalog and uses the same part numbers. Slightly higher prices but a good alternative to a grainger account.

And make sure they charge you tax when necessary. We used to do a lot of tax free purchases for universities and they would sometimes default to that which could stir up trouble later.

They don't really seem to care at the counter about personal purchases, but they are weird like that. Especially with their retail prices.

anyone know where to get the plastic tubing and end caps that you used to get when you'd buy a barrel?

Regarding Grainger, they now have a new division called zorotools. I will say that the one order I placed with them (Miller Syncrowave 210) they completely flubbed, double shipping ANDROID double billing. Took a month to straighten out, though they did make it right.
