Imperial nuts and bolts

I am in the process of rebuilding the suspension on my Stylus and I'm trying to find an online supplier of 1/2" x 2 3/4" unf bolts but I am finding it impossible.
Can anybody suggest a reliable supplier?

Have you tried Namrick

https://www.namrick.co.uk/

I've sourced a number of fastners and other bits from them before with success. I believe others on here have used them as well.


Seems "BenB" has the same thoughts!

When I lived in Bedfordshire I used - Norton Fasteners

I am sure that there are others around that do the same

IIRC Namrick supplied me some shim washers of specific thicknesses as well - good people to deal with.

I would definitely NOT buy safety critical fixings from ebay.

There is so much counterfeit stuff out there you need to be really careful.

Stick with the likes of Namrick. You could even ask them for the testing reports/certification if you're being really careful.

Cheers,
James

Just because its on ebay doesn't mean its dodgy. Most of the UK based suppliers of fixings on ebay are well known fixings suppliers that you could order from separately from their own websites. I find that when buying small quantities for DIY use you can often get a better deal than you'd get when buying from the same people direct as these suppliers are often more set up for bulk buying for the trade so their ebay shops are more suited for small quantities. Not always though so check it both ways.

Having just looked I see that Namrick have an ebay shop too. Namric on ebay

Definitely don't buy direct from china though!

It's not all bad, at least you got skiing and decent mountain biking up there.

All I got down here are imperial nuts and bolts

1. Namrick will send the bits out for customers.
2. I like Brighton (my oldest mate of 40 years lives there).

Late to the party but I got mine from Arun Fastners:

https://www.arunfasteners.co.uk/contact/ordering/

It looks like they ship out, but this was the only place I could find that did the long suspension bolt in imperial for the fury.
