    I have been shopping on line a lot within the past 5-6 years ..... mostly Amazon Prime.

    Bolts and hardware at Home Depot & Lowe's in our area are not what it used to be. They hire some local guy to restock their department ..... looks like he visits every (3) months after the hardware drawers are almost empty.

    On line, these stores indicate what they have at particular stores; however when one goes there, the local hardware guys admit the home offices who post stocked items have no idea what is in stock. Then often the check out lanes are closed where they try to force customers to use self-checkouts where lines are long.

    While still working, I just do not have time to waste to drive around and find out advertised items are not available in stock.

    Thanks for taking time to post a resource for common supply items.

      Consistent quality is the reason I use it.Never knew how good I had it when I was in field service for Cashman in Reno,you could buy whatever you wanted for your truck if you were turning revenue.Try the manifold sealer the next time you assemble your exhaust,you'll never use anything else.

        The Cat bolts are all grade 8 in US standard sizes. And the head is thick in comparison to all the others out there. I take a file and clean the cat logo and grade markings off and that is as close to an original Model A bolt that you are going to find. Downside they are expensive.

          Standard Hardware Guide
          by Dennis
          I have a Standard Hardware Guide that has no date when it was published. I contacted Jim Canon months ago who is the technical director of MAFCA who forwarded my email to the JSC director at the time. I don't remember the director's name without looking for that email. Back to the guide I have found several mistakes and have forgotten a lot of them. I remember the chairman mentioned the difficulty...

          Model A farming plant - is there anything like this?
          by Hoogah
          Over the past couple of weeks, I've been involved in preparations for a clearing sale on a farm that belonged to two bachelor brothers. The last of the brothers passed away about 18 months ago. Both were well into their 80s when they died. What is unique about these blokes is that they farmed in some kind of time warp for almost all of their lives.

          by George Miller
          Helping a friend with his car that he got some time ago. You just never know what some are going to do. It had new bolts all over, but no lock washers. I guise because they were all to short. I always use the old bolts that were made for the job and look right. He for got the gasket for the manifold and carb. Who knows what the inside of the engine looks like. We really need to do thinks right on...

          Are All Kingpins Created Equal?
          by dmaxweb
          Are there different manufacturers of the Kingpins and locking wedge bolts sold by the vendors? If so, do they vary in quality and precision?

          How available are NOS Kingpins?

          How to remove those nasty rusted nuts and bolts
          by tbirdtbird

          We grew up in the northeast, where the road salt in the long winter was deeper than the snow, and we were fed rust flavored Gerber Baby Food and learned to like it. Example, brake lines on any car lasted no more than 3 years.

          Accordingly, we had to develop strategies to deal with rusted fasteners. And they were ALL rusted.

          I have...

          While rummaging around in my various cans and butter tubs I come to find some original domed head bolts with a unique feature that I bet few know about. As you can see from the pictures, these are indeed domed bolts that I believe were used as valve cover bolts with split washers.

          The unique feature is on the backside of the head, now after all this time, almost worn off are little bumps.

          We took a ride to Lancaster, Pa today. Gotta love the hay bailers and other farm equipment being pulled by 4 horses.

          Anybody ever try this? (Plating)
          by Terry, NJ
          Well, in looking over my A parts, both needed and surplus, I realize that they all need plating. Some youtube research has led me to believe that it's not beyond our skills and resources. First, you need a tank to do it in (5gal plastic bucket), second, you need a power supply, battery charger, battery, or a real power supply. A supply of nickel to plate from (Anodes?) I'm thinking of using a jar...
