Darren,

Not that it is difficult to find, but usually very expensive the smaller you get.

So much so, I have just bought half his stock, plus some 3mm as well.

Thanks for the link.

I know you like to keep some stock in, but even so, he has an awful lot listed.... :ddb: :ddb: :ddb:

1500 M3 studding and that's per pack of four, I make that 6,000 left.....wot you gonna do with 6,000 M3 allthreads John....


Just pulling on ya  :lol:

His other stock seems cheap too, M3 x 16 STAINLESS CAP HEAD ALLEN BOLTS 500 BULK PACK at 13 quid  :bugeye:
And there is plenty more,

Maybe a bulk buy and split between us (as a group I mean), I doubt even you want 500 of everything.....but then with 6,000 allthreads I could be wrong  :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

All in jest John, all in jest....

He is a great chap to deal with very fast delivery and very fair on postage, and does not mind small orders , a lot of his bolts include postage so you know how much its going to cost for just a few grub screws, when i did the mill conversion I used his bolts in case I use any coolant , they will stay shinney

Ps Is that why they say Bogs is a bit of a stud  :lol:  :ddb: :lol:  :ddb:

Got to agree about the service and price dealt with him for a fair while
now usually bulk packs, find that the price including postage to Oz
more than fair.

Hi people,

regarding "small" diam. studding, i.e. 1mm 1.2mm e.t.c. at reasonable prices but rather costly at handling and shipping from Germany my personal suppliers are Messrs http://www.afv-model.com/4711shop/index.php?cat=c232_Threaded-rod.html

I bought some m6 brass studding from him in January but apparently it got lost in the post but to be fair I contacted him and he sent me some more, personally I think it was never posted probably due to the number of sales he has, I found out later that the firm is only 5 miles from were I live the chances of my order being lost in the post travelling that distance is remote, look at all the negative feedback he has.
Iím not saying you should not use him as some of you have had no problems maybe I was just unlucky.  ::)

I thought this looked interesting so I followed the link only to find it's the guy I've been using since I started this hobby.
I've never had any bother with him at all.
