    Default Re: machinery or mnachines?

    'Materials' is fine.

    In a generic case, 'machinery' would be better. But if you had been taliking about supplies of a specific sort of machine, then say 'machines'.

    'Without a hitch' means smoothly/with no problems (so your 'web service' example is fine).
