The most important shelf for robotics: Machinery's handbook, McMaster Catalog and a dictionary. Who needs the internet?

Almost right.

Try the shelf below--All three Behind the Design books. Make sure those are on there.



Oh, and I can vouch that if you order enough a catalog shows up. We've got quite a few at work...

/sigh ... sliding mentor card across the table... Missed them, even though Marshall would disagree, I'd put them in front of the dictionary in importance order.

Re: pic: When you overload McMaster-Carr

I think McMaster changed something on their site to reduce bot traffic or something. While I was shopping for parts yesterday I got a "You must log in to continue browsing" prompt that blocked me from seeing any items after about 30 minutes of searching normally.

I was able to switch browsers and continue normally, which tells me they're probably doing it with cookies (so if you clear your cookies it will probably work again). Kind of an annoying feature though.

I honestly can't figure out how you get one... we do spend a lot with them but likely not as much as others that I know don't have them... It's quite odd... Our last one before this one was 119 if that tells you anything.

I think the threshold for getting a McMaster catalog might be different if you have a consumer versus business account with them.

I think you have to have an account with them. I'm not sure... We got our Catalog last week. It makes a great paper weight.

Can confirm. I used one to hold a paper template onto something at work not long ago while the glue dried.
