Default source for stainless steel metric cap/machine screws

You guys all had such great info the other day on electrical connectors, I thought I'd throw this question out there too.

In doing resto work on my 40's and in helping Zach with his 55, we have had many instances where we would like to replace fasteners with stainless steel for future servicability and the local Home Depot only has a limited selection/supply.

Usually looking for metric flat/socket head, phillips oval head , flat phillips head machine screws and of course hex head cap screws.

Local Denver source would nice for this and that. But if we needed to order some bulk cartons and stock up on some of the more popular sizes, it would probably be worth it.

Thanks!

At one time Shane (AATLAS1X) on MUD was selling bulk hardware for a decent price...Nice for guys like me that didn't have a clue what sizes are needed - If you have no luck finding stuff locally you might try looking him up...He use to sell the stuff on ebay as well

I just bought some bolts off ebay... we'll see what the quality is. But you can get everything on there these days, here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/STAIN...Q5fAccessories


Have you tried Lowes? they usually have a little more in that aisle than the Depot. hth..

I go to AAA metric for all my metric nut and bolt needs. I usually don't go with stainless. I usually get some kind of zinc plating. MEH to stainless steel.

Lowes has a decent selection, fastenal is definitely good. I bought a whole bag of various sizes there one time and really stocked up. I also like Ace, they always seem to have what I need. Home Depot does not have the best selection.

Second AAA, they have everything metric and not just fasteners. Odd ball taps, whatever.

x2. I bought a huge inventory of all the common types of bolts, nuts, screws, etc. They don't have yellow zinc, but otherwise they've got a great selection.

Edit: oops - looks like I should be x5 or something.....
