Does anyone know of a good source for low-cost aluminum or brass Imperial standoffs? I'm specifically looking for #4-40 0.375" male-female standoffs, but wouldn't mind picking up a few other sizes. Metric standoffs are plentiful and cheap -- I can find brass M3 10mm m-f units for under $0.15 apiece, but their similarly-sized Imperial cousins are harder to find and about 3x more expensive.

Regards,
Scott

Sorry for the belated response; we’re on vacation in Costa Rica and online access is severely limited this deep in the Osa peninsula.

Years ago I bought dozens of Imperial standoffs from McMaster-Carr which, at the time, was running a crazy sale on them - I recall discounts in the 80 to 90% range. Given that experience, M-C’s regular prices seem excessive. But I do like rayma’s suggestion and will do so when I return home.
