Stainless steel fasteners

Stainless Steel Fasteners

Question for anyone:  Some time ago on this 'net there was mention of a
source for SS fasteners and springs for XK's.  Does anyone have this
information? Was it MSC from Pittsburgh?  Do they have British Standard
fasteners as well, or do we have to go to UK for these?  Thanks to anyone
who has this information. - Carl Hanson, 1951 XK120 FHC

I have an MSC catalog. Most listings are in US sizes. They also have a
small list of metric machine screws and hex head cap screws. No BS sizes
are listed. Here's the address:
P.O. Box 13334, Pittsburg 15243; Phone - 1-800-359-7166 or 412-341-8989;
Fax 412-341-0859 - Mike Carpenter

Full selection of BSF/BSW fastenings (set screws, bolts, nuts [full, half,
dome and castellated], washers) available by mail order from Namrick in the
UK. It seems crazy to have to buy this stuff from the UK but I understand
that we may well be the last bastion of the use of such "proper"
threadforms and supply may be difficult in the colony ...... ;-) I'll post
Namrick's details later as they aren't to hand here at work. - Dick

Carl, Send me an address and Ill mail copies of what I have on these parts.
