Why can I go to home shithole and purchase a fairly decent selection
of stainless steel machine screws but cant buy nuts and washers for
My local home depot carries a fairly decent...well....an OK selection
of stainless stell machine screws but they dont stock washers or nuts.
Sounds like a gubberment run organization to me.
i stayed in home depot for about three hours one NIGHT looking for one
8 mm nut.. kept finding one, but not the correct thread.... then next
day (morning) i went to the local ACE Hardware Store and got one for
about 10 cents.. it was not stainless, but i did not need stainless,
they also have all the stainless stuff also(bought it when the pool
ladder needed some new screws..... and each time i was in ACE the worker
found what i needed in less then a minute... no walking around looking
for a clerk... they meet you at the door..

Works for me, too. Our local True Value has a decent selection of SS, but the
Ace hardware is better. Lowe's is rather limited. HTH
I'll put in another vote for Ace Hardware for SS bolts, nuts, washers.
Probably for brass fittings too.
One reason Builder's Square went down the tubes is because they seemed to
concentrate on large items and failed to have any of the small parts
needed to go with them. In my case I was usually looking for flare
fittings, brass bushings or nipples, etc. which they never had.
