This place has been in in business for 140 years and in the same building for since the late 1800s. I just enjoy seeing all the old elevators still working in the place.

Picture on their home page appears to have been taken in the late-1950s.

Speaking of home pages, their website is not very well designed. Items are listed with part numbers but little else to tell you what you are considering. About five minutes of browsing was enough to convince me that I wouldn't waste my time trying to do business with them.

I agree the web page is not the best. If you go to their online catalog page it is much more user friendly.

Being local the have a great inventory of seals and o-rings and hydraulic valves, fittings and hoses.
They also have high speed tool steel and good selection of drills and taps.

It is locally owned so I try to support them when I can.
