I've seen http://www.namrick.co.uk/ suggested before, but their website is quite sparse..
I've also found http://www.westfieldfasteners.co.uk/ and http://www.fixingsupplies.co.uk/ - the first looks quite professional if a little expensive, the second a navigation nightmare..

Anyone have any recommendations for stuff like this?

For small quantities I use a local motor factors which stock nuts and bolts, for large quantities try screwfix or toolstation, for midsize amounts then ebay. :-)

See, ebay is my usual go-to for everything (that or Amazon these days!) .. but then I thought "What if I get bolts made of Chinese cheese" :lol:

I've recently used A-Series Spares for specialised bolts I needed. http://shop.aseriesspares.co.uk
But contacting them if they get your order wrong is a nightmare. They were the only place in the UK who sold what I needed.
Not used these guys yet http://www.fastenerdata.co.uk/11fast-supp/#distributors but, they have an distributor near me.
Getting small quantities can be a nightmare depending on what you are looking for.
As said, local places are best for day-to-day things.

A lot of the bolt supplies on eBay have feedback totals in their thousands, if their bolts were made of Chinese cheese then at least some of those feedback would mention it, unless Chinese cheese was an underground product not for sale outside the forbidden city and these eBay sellers are just a front and you DO actually get Chinese cheese!!! :-P:-P:-P

I've bought a lot of the ad-hoc bolts from Kays Fasteners on ebay. Fast delivery and good quality.

I found Namrick very good for the small stainless steel bolts and screws. Very fast service. You do have to pay delivery unless spending over £100. I used them because there was always a couple of bolts or screws you just realised you wanted, and they came almost next day. Screwfix were also good if you have one locally.

Another vote for Kays on ebay, low cost, free and quick delivery

I've just found a place in Macclesfield called Robert Delaney. Stocks everything but not sure if they do mail order.
For anyone based in Cheshire they are very handy

Ta folks, eBay it is then (mostly)!

Seems there might still be a few bits I'm missing from the "nut & bolt kit" and annoyingly they are bits I am having a hard job finding online (high tensile metric and imperial studding, predominantly). Might bite the bullet and get that from Dax, at least then I know it meets their specs (i.e. does "high tensile" mean 8.8 or 10.9 in this situation.. holding the CV joints & rear hubs on!)

Aaron, just go here:

https://www.margnor.co.uk/

or better still, go personally......

Margnors are in guildford, 10 mins from the Guildford town A3 exit, right in the middle of a housing estate.
These guys are THE go-to place for all fixings and fasteners, very friendly, very enthusiastic, really know their stuff.
Turn up with any old mystery rusty bolt and say 'can i have 12 of these in stainless' - no problem.

+1 for Kays on eBay, never had a problem with their bolts and quick delivery

I'll give them a try in person - I can't seem to find high tensile imperial threaded rod on the Internet for love nor money.. or maybe Dax will be nice and send me the "7/16 X 34mm HIGH TENSILE STUDDING (8-OFF)" I'm missing out of the nut & bolt kit ;)


Still, having just sorted through the three boxes of bolts in the shed I now have more metric bolts than you can shake a stick at:

I ordered some bits off eBay in the end after many posts - I couldn't find what I wanted at Kays but I did find them from a place called Spalding Fasteners.

Anyway, ordered a bunch of bits as they had a 10% sale if you ordered four items or more and they all arrived very neatly packed (each size of bolt heat sealed into a little section of one long packet) and came with a rather nice 2016 diary. I'll go back there..
