I need 14 BRASS Carriage Bolts, 1/4" diameter, 1.5 in long, with brass
nuts. These are for an outdoor patio bench. Steel will rust, so I want
brass (which is what the bench originally had). The local hardware
stores dont carry brass bolts.
Anyone know anywhere that will sell a small amount of them? I'm sure
they are costly, so I dont want to buy a whole case of them.
I need 14 of each, but will probably buy 20 of them.
If I cant find brass, I'd opt for stainless steel, but they are not
available locally either.

I have 3 places within 3 miles of my house. Ace Hardware, Home Depot,
and Lowe's all have large fastener aisles. They have zinc, stainless,
and brass. Of course, the stainless and brass cost more but I am
impressed by their large selection.

Just one example... over $ 2. per bolt ! 64 cents per nut ?
Huh. I hope I'm resading that wrong.
... and why wouldn't Fastenal's web page provide a link to the
1/4 20 brass nut that goes with this ? instead of stainless ..

I called Fastenal today. The local store did not have the brass carriage
bolts at their store, but could get them from another store in 3 to 4
days. But could not get 1.5 inch, but could get 2 inch. (that would
work). Then they told me the price. $3.87 for EACH bolt. $0.29 for each
nut. Total price for 15 of each, $62.40 PLUS SHIPPING, (or I can pick
them up at the store).
I didn't even ask the shipping price, I just said that's too expensive,
I'm not interested. I hung up the phone.
ACTUALLY, THAT'S FRIKKING ROBBERY !!!
I went to a nearby larger city. True Value hardware had 1.5" x 1/4"
carriage bolts in Stainless Steel for $0.79 each, the nuts were 18 cents
each. I really did not need 15 of them, since several of the old ones
are fine. I bought what I really needed and one spare one. Total cost,

Not really. They sell very few brass carriage bolts. The time of setup
for a small run, a more expensive material, and they the cost of having
it sit in inventory are all factors.
No different in my line of work. Want to buy one non stock part? $500
and I'm breaking even. Want to buy five thousand of them? 50 cents each.
Right. "Bronze finish" means (afaik) electroplated. Just like "galvanized"
has come to mean electroplated with zinc which isn't even CLOSE to
galvanizing by dipping in molten zinc.
BTW, there are numerous bronzes - just as there are numerous stainless
steels - but the only ones we are likely to encounter are silicon bronze and

You could probably shorten some bronze toilet base bolts for that. The head is sort of like a carriage bolt. Lowes and Home Depot should have stainless steel and galvanized choices, both of which are probably suitable for your project.
