Default O-Ring supplier

Has anyone found a good supplier of small ( say 3/32 I.D. ) O-rings?

I have found most of my "O" rings at NAPA auto parts. I have also found them at GS Parsons air gas. You can find them at some of the places that handle welding gases.

When I needed some neoprene (NOT rubber) o-rings, I found a good selection and pricing at a business which rents and services construction equipment using a lot of hydraulics. Good luck, Dzl

Default Ace is the place!

My local HS, er, I mean Ace Hardware has TONS of them, all sizes, from tiny (smaller than you can use around a needle valve) up to park flyer tires.-BIG park flyer tires!

Thanks for the ideas guys. Haven't thought to check with a welding supply shop. Most everyone else carries a minimum size of 1/8". However, I did find 3/32" ID at a local SCUBA shop. Seems anything that has air or fluid flowing through it has these blasted o-rings. What the heck was wrong with old Super Tiger and O.S. carbs. Even the old Webra carbs, as basic as they were/are, did a fair job of metering the fuel.
