Resource Guide

I have created a Resource Guide of different types of items that are available from companies locally as well as nationwide.

I have used several of the companies from the list and learned of others through students and by researching company websites.


General Hardware, Tools, Fasteners

Metal Distributors

Plastic & Polymers Distributors

Electronic Components

Arts & Craft Suppliers

Woodworking Suppliers


How to use the web links in this Resource Guide:

  • Left mouse click on the company's name will open the link to their website.
  • Left mouse click on the company’s address will open a link in Google maps and show you where the company is located and assist you in direction to the company's street address.

This listing was originally compiled for the Student Shop in the Fall of 2010.

I hope that it will be a helpful resource for you and to assist you in finding items you need to complete your projects.

If you have sources you use and find that they were not listed or if you find any errors in this information please let me know so corrections can be made.

Neither Duke University nor the Pratt Student Shop endorse any of the vendors listed on the resource guide.

This guide was created to help you research companies who may provide resources or materials you may need for your engineering projects.
