Bolt depot has better prices than Fastinal (and no sales tax).

Most common screws and nuts are available in Brass:

I use Fastenal for the early solid state stuff that is getting hard to find. Round head Philips screws for example. Round, not pan head.

I found my brass acorn nuts, very cheap in 6-32 on Ebay.

ebay.com link » Brass Solid Hex Acorn Cap Nut Unc 6 32 Qty 100

Brass screws, Ive found at Ace hardware, and most others.

Brass hex standoffs in 6-32 have been difficult.
Ive found metric, and the 6-32 nuts work, but it wont thread onto existing
threaded parts.
Ive found a few at local skycraft surplus, but while Im OK to buff and seal, Id prefer new milling.

Any luck on Brass standoffs in 6-32?

Any real computer store (not Bestbuy or the like) as it's a common circuit board standoff size.

I've ordered from here before when boltdepot didn't have what I was looking for:

https://www.albanycountyfasteners.com/

Looks like they have a few things in brass, but most are steel.
