McMaster Carr WTF?

I'm searching for accordion boot material for my 4700 pass through.... I click a few links navigating my way through their "490,000" products and suddenly I get this:

WTF?

Well that will pose a problem for me. I'm always searching McMaster for random crap that I'm not sure even exists.

First they won't send out the books, now they won't let you surf the site?!!

They must be in a hurry to go out of business.

If you have an account with them, you'd get them. Mere mortal like us won't get them. I actually have one at home because we had one "extra" at work

Happens in the U.S. too - Fawkers just did the lockout thing to me...

Trying to get an order out before the afternoon deadline, and they fucking BLOCK me for an hour!

In US, and logged into site

Guess they don't want my money huh?

Been doing business with them for over a decade, and now I can't order shit.

They were sent a very stern email... Guess it's Grainger, MSC, or any number of other suppliers from now on
