Re: Metric fittings

MSC can get a lot of things that aren't in their catalog. Their deal with a supplier usually allows them to get anything that supplier has, but MSC only puts significant- volume products in the catalog. If you have a local MSC sales office they will be very happy to help you; that's what justifies their existence. Otherwise call the 800 number on the catalog.

In St. Louis is a pneumatics and hydraulics house, John Henry Foster, that has a huge stock of fittings. There should be a similar company near you somewhere. Try asking somebody at a mining company who their hydraulics supplier is.

You could also try They might have something like that.
