Good site! Thanks for the link.

Here's my favorite for the more basic stuff - - Bolt Depot:

I particularly like the tons of great reference materials found there under the Fastener Information section, here:

Fastener basics, printable fastener tools, fastener grades, conversion tables! I learned a lot from that info.

Check it out.

2006 GL1800 - Arctic White
1987 GL1200A - Black/Gray
1976 GL1000 LTD - Candy Special Maroon
1971 CL100S Scrambler - Blue/White
U.S. Navy SWO (1967 to 1976)

McMaster Carr is another good alternative for hardware tat I've used for years. Great selection and quick delivery.

Here's another source that has literally hundreds of U.S. locations and international shops as well:

I've never stumped them in a hunt for the odd inventions that hold various contraptions together and their prices are reasonable.

Thanks for the fastener tips, always good to know where to get odd stuff. As to Fastenal though, at least around here they stock zero in the stores. We have quite a few stores in Denver, and I'm not kidding, if I walked into any of them I would be shocked if they even had a 6mm bolt in stock. Sure can be ordered though.
