I second, MicroFasteners is an excellent vendor.

Another great source for a million supplies is McMaster-Carr industrial supply.

Drill bits, spring wire, adhesives, fasteners, you name it, most in small quantities, sold to anyone, no minimum, reasonable priceswith outstanding customer service. Need a .005" end mill? It ships today! I have been a loyal customer for business and personal needs for 30 years. My LHS is 120 miles away.

Was in a hobby shop the other day and saw one of those racks with cute little bags of machine screws, costing several bucks for 8 screws (I won't mention the name of the packager, but many will know who I mean). It reminded me that you can buy them at $2.50 for 100 screws, in all the right model railroad sizes and lengths, from Micro Fasteners ( I have no affiliation with or stake in them, I just buy from them on-line. I'm all for supporting the LHS, but not to this extent.
