Fasteners?


I do handyman work on what I call the beginner's level. Been doing this for near 2 years. I want to find a very good supplier of fasteners. I am not content with what I can find at the big box suppliers. I want to supply myself with toggle bolts, tek screws, zip-its (mini metal ones) and regular size, dry wall screws, do any of you know of an internet supplier which does not require you to be a company to purchase these and other sorts of fasteners?

Thank you in advance.

Fasteners?


"eric" I do the same type of work but maybe a bit more with a business labeling me as a "Household HandyMan" and Yes I do need special fasteners at times. I suppose the supplier would depend on the area you are located in, you didn't put that on your I.D. I don't have local access to many suppliers, Lowe's, HD, Fastenal, and a local nut/bolt company. I do use "McMaster-Carr" often though. This is a left-over from when I worked Industrial Maintenance for years. The closest McMaster-Carr location to me is 200 miles +/- and when I call them they usually can have my order here within 2-3 business days. I look online for what I need, call them to place the order on my business account and it's done. I'm sure there may be other suppliers in your area which would do this also if/when you could set up an account. David
