    Ebay and Amazon can often put you directly in touch with vendors further up the supply chain often cutting out some of the middlemen and resellers thus resulting in rather significant savings.
    Not every bargain out there represents either copyright infringement , counterfeit parts or adds to trade imbalance. Comparison shopping helps identify those retailers who offer same product but add significant mark-ups or shipping fees. Then you can decide whether to support them or not.
    What I will no longer do is pre-pay for a special order from a local brick and mortar store and wait to go pick up something across town for twice the price of what same item could have been mailed directly to me days in advance if I had only ordered it myself.
    I will however pay a price premium as a reasonable reward to those local shops that do keep inventory on hand. Retail is a hard business so I try to support them when reasonable.

    "Measure twice, Cut once" was the rule in my cabinetmaking but it certainly applies here. Find one supplier that carries all or most of the parts you want or need and make a complete list. The issue is more about the outrageous shipping costs than saving a buck or two by going with three different suppliers.
    If all you need is a tiny carb jet that costs $2.40 plan on spending $8 for the shipping. Smart money orders a few hundred in parts all at once and still pays the $8 for shipping. Even if it's a part you don't need now but may need later just ad it in your order.

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
