    online source for metric fasteners ....

    Does anyone know of a Canadian online source for obscure metric fasteners.

    I need an assortment of M6 and M8 from 30mm to 90mm in length.

    Toronto-cycle

    He has some nice stuff ... will have to keep him in mind for another time.

    I'm looking for 18-8 stainless steel. I'm going to check out brafasco first. They have a retail outlet
    in Scarborough. Unfortunately they are 7-5/M-F only. Failing that it's mcmaster-carr. So I end
    with too many nuts and washers, at least I can get the bolts I need.

    thanks guys

    Can't talk - bad connection - PACIFIC FASTENER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Other's are a waste of time.

    EDIT - Okay, connection is a bit better now. Info;

    Pacific Fasteners (1981) Ltd
    27 Chauncey Avenue, Etobicoke, ON M8Z 2Z2
    (416) 231-7295

    They deal with small orders, too. Metric up-the-wazzoo! Even ny-lock nuts. I know you asked for something on-line, but I really believe they're worth you phoning them. You can even fax them an order, get a quote and have them prep it for you so when you arrive it's ready for you. Well, you could 2 years ago - might/not be different now.

    I run a store in Ottawa and sell metric stainless steel. Use it for my bike all the time. We do sell online if you need one or two bolts or nuts.

    The OP FireDog46 will finally be able to finish his 2006 build project now.

    Maybe the new posts 8 years later will be useful to anyone else looking for a more current project?

    Absolutely! I've long relied on Canadian Tire of all places, they surprisingly carry way more metric than Home Depot. But all these other places were what I really needed. No more flathead bolts for my bikes.

    Fastenal for bolts. Never failed to help me find bolt I need. Never bat an eye when I pull out the part and show what I need. Best example being the little bolt needed for Hope top cap.

    Fastenal
    Spaenaur
    Knapp
    BoltsPlus
    Brofasco

    I'm sure there are other "industry" suppliers as well. We use the above list all the time for work, albeit we generally use imperial stuff.

    If you want to pay $0.75 for a bolt that's only worth $0.10, then go use Home Depot or Crappy Tire or Lowes, etc.
