Whilst we feel this is the most complete selection of Stainless Steel Fasteners currently available on the web we are sure there may be some who think otherwise. If this is so and you need a part not listed please email us with details for a bespoke quotation against your requirement. Our aim is to eventually provide as many items against specific vehicle part numbers as possible. This is not an easy task to undertake as part numbers and descriptions can get mismatched, sometimes information can differ for the same vehicle. The only way we can effectivly do this is via you the restorer. After all it is you who knows exactly what you want as you have the physical parts in your hands. So please keep us informed if you can; as information shared empowers all whole love restoring old and not so old vehicles.
The vast majority of our products are 'cold formed' that is the method of manufacturing used: basically your part starts life as a section of Stainless wire forced into a die and then compressed to 'form' the product, no heat is used, just immense pressure. This method compresses the molecules thus making a part of a greater molecular density. Greater density = Greater ultimate strength of the finished product. Parts that are turned on a lathe from bar in its raw format can not offer this strength or density (usually ss 303/A1 because it is free machining). If you care to check our important links section there is one giving the tensile strength of Stainless steel that is 'cold formed'. We also feature a section under the same improtant links that gives you the chemical composition of the Stainless used so you can assertain the likelyhood of corrosion resistance.
The cold forming process can be used to produce just about any product once dies are made. The governing factors are economies of scale in die manufacturing and ultimatly quantities of required product. Where we have not got the volume to supply cold formed parts we have to supply bar turned items as other suppliers do. Once the volume levels justify the expense of cold forming we will change production to the more advanced and economical cold forming. In fact cold forming is a 'green' method of production as there is little waste once the wire has been produced, only the amount needed is used to produce the part. This is opposed to lathe turned materials that are wasteful as a considerable amount is either turned off the outside of the bar to create the screw shank or in the case of internally threaded products drilled out. This waste has to then be recycled using further energy resources.
Ocassionally, like many suppliers we may run out of items from time to time, which can be a dissapointment, but we always try to keep lead time on replacement parts to the lowest minimum possible. So if this occurs please bear with us if you can, or inform us via email if your item/s become urgent and you can't wait for our stocks to arrive. We will always attempt to keep you informed of any protracted deliveries so you have the chance to make a choice of what course of action to take.
We Ship globally via DHL and deliveries can often be with you sooner than you anticipate. Internally within the Uk/Europe for small items we use the Post Office delivery sysstem for ease and cost efficency. Heavier consignments would be shipped using a dedicated carrier service (please email us for options)
Once again many thanks for taking the time to browse our site, our hope is you find what you want; if not then you can always send us an email of the items you require for a bespoke quotation. We hope you enjoy the experience of using our site, its information and ultimatly shopping with us.Regards Pete & all the team.
