I have problems getting this guy to send me my complete order. He forgot to pack most of it and after 10 mails where he tried to blame me he's now gone quiet. Anybody else have any experince w/this guy?
If anybody else have a good suplier of stainless screws please let me know :roll:

Web site looks impressive, but I hate to think what his stock would cost if he held it all. We've had trouble with suppliers only buying stock when they have enough orders. Though they take your money in advance! Imperial fasteners are getting harder to find on this side of the world. So who lives around manchester and is willing to knock on his door?

I normally go and buy fastners from outlets near me (Britbits being my main port of call :thumb ), or there are a few BSA suppliers I deal with over the phone. As for stainless parts, there was a supplier up north I bought some bits from a while ago for my A7SS project and had a minor quality problem, that he was not prepared to deal with :( I didn't realise until later that he was stopping supplying BSA stainless parts (I think he still does Notrun stainless bits). Any stainless parts I want now I get from the traders at autojumbles at Kempton, Shepton Mallet and Netley Marsh etc.

Not too many suppliers of anything but metric in stainless around here I am afraid. In all the years I have bought stuff on the net this is only the second time I have been blown. And its only £25 so I'll live. I was recommended this site by a friend so I'll try that instead; http://www.a2stainless.co.uk

One of the people I have used (he is at most of the main autojumbles in England) a guy called Will Horgan, Stainless Classics, as well as nuts and bolts in Cycle, BSF, Whit, BA, UNF, UNC and ISO Metric threads he does a lot of parts in stainless. Check him out if you want.

Can recommend Lightning Spares in South Manchester http://www.lightning-spares.co.uk. They're a BSA specialist and have been making stainless steel specials for Beezas for 25 years. Brian knows his stuff and if he doesn't behave he's only 15 mins away so I can easily pop round and <902

Well, it looks like boltmeup took that money and run so to speak. No response either to emails or a Paypal resolve request. It was only £25, but I wont be shopping there again..

I've also used Lightning Spares and have had good service for cycle parts and stainless.

A2 stainless.co.uk (also known as Stig Fasteners) is run by Mark Pinkney. Good guy, good stuff. Lots of Imperial threads, too.
