source for some oddball fasteners

I found this manufacturers website that has 6 catalogs with various oddball hardware that might come in handy for solving some of the problems that hotrod builder guys might run into.

The washer catalog was of particular interest to me, it has some specialty washers that could solve a problem or 2.

The post screw catalog is a keeper as well. ...(and not because it has sex in the title either ) Post screws (or "sex" screws as some call), them are handy for fastening things together that you want a smooth fastener on both sides of the assembly.


Check it out,
http://accuratemfg.com/ampg7.aspx

I never dealt with them directly before, but IIRC, McMaster Carr carries some of their line. I don't know if they have a minimum order, but they do have a dealer network.


Later, mikey

Mikey,
McvMaster-Carr is a great source for odd-ball parts. They have no minimum order unless a piece is sold by box lots. For instance, I needed some 2" double sided tape this week so I ordered up 2 rolls. Shipping is quick(ordered on Monday, got it on Tuesday) and at cost - UPS

Another is MSC. While they are a wee bit more expensive, and their catalog somewhat confusing until you get used to it their shipping is about as good and their stock fills in any missing McMaster-Carr stuff

LOL, I LOVE MCMASTER CARR!!!!!
I have had a Mcmaster Carr account for 10 years, and used to order from them when I worked at Poli Form...I get stuff from them almost weekly.

I even get a new Mcmaster Carr Paper catalog every year. 3600 pages+ of industrial supply heaven.
I give my old one to someone else who hasn't had the opportunity to do business with them, or who wants a paper catalog. They are in somewhat high demand.

I have seen a NIB Mc master Carr Catalog sell on ebay for over 100 dollars. (No lie).

Catalog 113 is the current one. Check out ebay....
http://search.ebay.com/mcmaster-carr...carrQ20catalog

Can you believe a 1972 edition is up to 159.00?

Outrageous.

I get the MSC catalog too, but have been reluctant to buy from them as the prices are too high..


I put that website up from Accurate mfg because it showed the whole line, I know not all of their stuff is in Mc master's catalog, but they'd probably order it for you if Accurate didn't sell direct.

Mikey, How could we have gotten by all those years were it not for McMaster Carr?

No kidding, I use McMaster Carr at work all the time. I have tried on numerous occasions to get my hands on their paper catalog. Every time they try and send me one (4 times now), it gets intercepted before it gets to me. We have a shipping/receiving department and I suspect someone there is getting them for themselves.

Mikey,
I've just elevated you to higher pedestal!! My latest paper version is 2004, #110

I sent them an email a while back requesting a new catalog. They actually called me and said I was no longer qualified since I retired and no longer spent enough money as a GE employee - and they are right as I used to supply common parts shortage odds and ends quicker that way then through our parts group.

Vince, you might have to meet the mail or UPS guy to get yours .

I do have to look at the Accurate site.



Dave

Those older catalogs sell so high because they list Asbestos products and Lawyers just love to get hold of those things!
