Source for low cost hydraulic crimp fittings?

Lately I have been running out of hydraulic hose fittings. My last batch came from a warehouse cleanout and have served me well. Does anyone have a source for fittings at a good price? The fittings I use are the Eaton/Aeroquip style with an 8-segment Finn crimper. The smooth inside Weatherhead fittings require ribbed dies that I do not have so I need the spiral finished ferrule style. Not sure if anyone else makes up their own hoses but I have found it very convenient to not have to go to the hydraulic shop fighting traffic for the privilege of paying big money to solve problems. Hoses always seem to break on the weekend when nobody is open anyway.

Grainger and Mc Master I have found to be expensive and are far away. Fastenal is right around the corner and I never thought of them as anything other than a hardware supplier, that's a great tip and I am going there today to see what they have in hydraulic fittings!

We use Motion Industries for our Gates stuff. I dont think they do Aeroquip though, but may want to check. And check with similar supply houses.

I know Catching Fluid Power around here has Aeroquip stuff but not sure if they are national or???
