Scale Hardware ?
« on: November 22, 2016, 02:33:49 PM »
I used to buy really small stainless hex head bolts down to .8 mm. from a supplier called Scale Hardware. They also had taps, washers and nuts in that size. I recently did a search for them and can't find anything. Does anyone know what became of them?
Thanks,
gbritnell

All stainless. 0-80 and larger.
Hope this helps.
Best,

According to their home page, they are being transferred to new owners this month, hope it continues as a great source, I have gotten great stuff from them in the past.

Unfortunately this source is not currently available.  The couple that own it are trying to sell the business and do not wish to deplete their inventory.  The wife had major surgery, and as the couple is older they no longer feel they can continue to run the business.  Hopefully it will reopen after being sold.

Edit:  just saw where Wayne Godshall is taking this over.   :cartwheel:  Wayne is a good guy well known in the steam loco business (he built the boiler for my A3).  I need to order some more screws soon.

Wayne also attends CF.

Hi George

I just found this shop:
http://www.bnamodelworld.com/scale-hardware -> The shop is in Australia though...

They at least sell the screws you mentioned.

Yes I found that site also. The problem is almost everything they have is sold out.

I have a set of watchmakers taps & dies that go from .3 to 1.2 mm. I'd be happy to send them to Ohio if you'd like.

Just to add to Ogaryd's post..........I just placed my order with the new owners (717) 275-3273. It's good to see them up and running. http://www.americanmodeleng.com/index.html

Hi George,
I use http://www.microscrews-shop.nl/, the site is in Dutch but the owner speaks/writes fluent English. I can vouch for the quality of bolts, shcs, set screws, nuts and drill bits.
For those of us outside EU he will remove VAT if you email your list (his webshop can't handle no-VAT sales)

messing=brass, rvs=stainless
