I just tried to place an order with MSC Industrial supply for Vactra #2 way lube that I've been using for over 40 years. For the first time in those 40 years it's on backorder. They say they have outstanding orders for over 2000 individual gallons. It's available elsewhere but for a premium. Luckily I have enough to last the 4-6 weeks they say it will take to be delivered.

I bought some off Amazon in 2019 for $38/gallon. Now I see they are charging $43/gallon (but back ordered). I looked at MSC and they want $82/gallon! Is that right?

60$ ea. if you buy 6 gallons. It's doubled since 2014. Supply and demand, 6 gallons will last us 2-3 years.

I don't find MSC to be all that inexpensive on anything and I too buy from them but mostly insert tooling and Weldon shank end mills. I prefer Bridgeport brand way oil myself.

Same here. I should have enough to last for the rest of my machining days.

MSC has always been high on their stuff. I sure miss Enco. :cool:

It's been a long time since I bought anything so I'm sure to be in for a shock...

Last week I was told at TSC they could not order motor oils or grease at the store level and that corporate would decide what was shipped to each store when looking for 00 weight gearbox grease.
