Good hardware shop for fixings

Post by JohnS » February 22nd, 2018, 3:26 pm

Does anyone know a shop which sells nuts and bolts which may not be available in the likes of B and q ?
Specifically I need m6 x 80mm screws or bolts with a counter sunk head and preferably with hex key drive(torque or pozy acceptable as 2nd choice). They must also be stainless steel.
I ordered some on evil bay, and when the screws turned up the are m5 and not stainless :roll: they are sending more out, but I need them this year weekend and as I leave for Norfolk tomorrow afternoon it’ll be too late.
Cheers

The only place I would recommend for nuts and bolts is Beardshaws around the back of Aquafax in Hoveton. They do absolutely everything in there. Highly recommended

Great thanks Miles, I’ll give them a look if I get to Norfolk in time. I might have sourced some in Colchester which is only 20 minutes from me, so the panic may be over 8-)

For future reference for anyone else, there are a couple of good "old fashioned" almost hardware shops, one in Brundall and another in Acle. I seem to recall a decent one in Loddon as well.

Thanks for the replies. I have screws sorted now!
I was thinking maybe we should have a directory on the forum for chandlers, hardware and camping shops etc. We all know a few, so we could get a comprehensive list of places near the broads?

That's a good idea.
I have always offered these people the chance to advertise for free on here but no interest so far.
