I thought this would be easy... living near A&A Tradin' Post spoiled me I guess. I should have bought these yesterday.

I need 25-30 SS button head allen drive metric screws, washers and nylocks in 5mm or 6mm X 16 length (longer is OK) and Fastenal is rolling snake eyes.

Where is a good place to pick these up this afternoon, you proud Northsiders?? Defend your honor! So far, South Side rules!

I am usually surprised what ACE carries. They are still a hardware store and haven't given into the "home improvement" fad.

If you know the South Side shops have what you need, it is probably faster to just run down there. I put 30,000 miles on my GMC in one year, and that doesn't include the miles I put on the Cruisers, so I may not be the best person to ask.

Did you try AAA Metric or is that too far south?

:thumb: They are city south not really south south. :hill:

South enough so that it is South Side in the first round, by TKO!!!
:bowdown: :tongue2: :clap: :headbang:



(central enough so that I can get there from downtown on the way to Northglenn, sorta...)
THANK YOU!

Yeah, ACE was a close second (and they are open Sundays, DOH!), but since AAA isn't too far and they have everything...

I have to second McGukins, although I realize that's farther north than you're looking to go. It's fashionable to bash McGuks, but they always seem to have what I'm looking for. Also have had some luck with Lowes, typically have more metrics than Home Depot, who typically have none.

Lowes has some, Ace has more, McDucks has even more, AAA metric is the mothership!
