regarding Amazon's dark corners of industrial and scientific equipment--I'm hoping you can hook me up with fun niche catalogs in PDF format for browsing on my iPad.
I always loved to flip though the Grainger
catalogs my school would receive (which seems to be available in a cumbersome PDF).
Are there other great catalogs available in PDF that are fun to flip through? I have no need for the printed volumes--I'm 97% certain I'll never order anything, and it's a waste of paper and space.
Anything is fair game--from industrial kitchen supplies, to avionics, to building materials, etc. E.g., wow, I had no idea hazmat suits came in different models, and, at $250 (or whatever), I should get one!
Not looking for basic consumer stuff like Hemmacher Schlemmer or whatever. The cool catalog your cool job has! And keeps in the break room!
