On a recent visit to Australia, our Business Development Manager Stuart Briscoe obtained orders for imperial nuts and bolts for an Australian power station. This follows on from our recent orders from Australian classic car restorers for BA and BSF fasteners.
The order included stainless steel and high tensile imperial threadform fasteners.
We hold the UK’s largest stocks of BSW, BSF, BA, UNC and UNF fasteners and now export to more than 35 countries around the world.
For further information, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
We were very happy to supply the fasteners for this fantastic 1977 Crossle 33F Formula Ford 2 Litre racing car.
The car is to be driven by Tom White, aged 16, and is eligible for the Historic FF2000 Championship.
We stock and can manufacture many different fasteners for use in motor sports. We supplied many different fasteners for this car, from socket screws to hexagon bolts, nuts and washers. We offer a wide range of fasteners with metric and imperial threadforms (BSF, BSW, UNC, UNF). Imperial nuts and bolts are extensively used in classic and vintage vehicles, and we hold the UK’s largest stocks.
All of us at Thomas Smith Fasteners would like to wish Tom the best of luck in his racing endeavours!
Here’s another example of our in-house special fastener manufacturing capabilities, which shows that not all our fasteners are threaded.
These 106mm x 220mm drilled pins were produced using a CNC machine in our onsite machine shop.
The above picture shows the pin inside our CNC machine during the manufacturing process. A hole is then drilled into the pin to accommodate an R Clip. These fasteners were produced for a customer in the Excavation industry.
Alongside our huge range of standard, off the shelf fasteners and fixings, we have extensive fastener manufacturing capabilities and many years of experience in providing high quality fastener solutions. Contact Gary, Stuart or Suzanne on 01942 520260 and we will be happy to discuss any requirements you may have.
After the success of our BSW and BSF assorted packs, we have now added UNC, UNF & Metric assorted fastener packs to our online shop range.
Each pack consists of either 105, 326 or 540 pieces and contains a handy assortment of bolts, nuts and washers in a durable case.
Starting at only £8.99, these mixed fastener kits are a great value way of keeping an assortment of imperial or metric fasteners to hand.
Congratulations to Mr. Glenn Minto of Wigan construction firm Mint Northwest Ltd, who won the cash prize for guessing closest to the number of fasteners in the display container on our stand at the Wigan Business Expo.
