Fastenal for most of my fasteners.

Metal Supermarket for when I don't need a full 20 foot length.

These are both local, so I save on shipping.

I'll add Coast Fabrication (http://www.coastfab.com) to the list as well. They're a great source for aircraft/military-spec fasteners.

For less than the cost of the abrasives to cut the stuff, you can buy just about any bracket you need for your project.
