Another beautiful piece of work that has been manufactured in house for one of our customers last week.
This was a special order for a Valve Casting Stud EN24T. Manufactured to a high spec drawing with tight tolerances.
We are continually improving our manufacturing capabilities which allows us to supply more of the weird and wonderful fasteners in various shapes and sizes.
We deal with a wide range of customers from the DIY expert to high end blue chip companies looking for top quality products from standard mild steel to exotic materials. Thomas Smith Fasteners is a unique company as we are both a stockist and a manufacturer which gives us capacity to supply more or less any fastener.
Our supply range of fasteners is huge with customers based in the motor industry. Particularly the Classis Car restoration sector, where customers are looking for the highest quality products.
BSF / BSW / BA were used in many known expensive Classic Cars and are in short supply in the UK. We pride ourselves of being to supply these parts either from our vast range of stocks or manufactured in house.
Take a look at the BSF bar turned single chamfered nuts we recently manufactured to a customer drawing in Chemical Black. These are the bees knees of nuts!
Look at this magnificent part manufactured for a Motorsport project!
We were given a very worn sample of the 1 1/2″ Stud which was measured, tested and inspected by our qualified Engineers and QA team.
A drawing was then produced and approved allowing us to manufacture this impressive stud to a very high standard.
Check out our previous blogs to see the vast range of products we can produce and supply.
This week we supplied a new customer with some 3/8 BSF Slotted Dog Point Grub Screws for a Tractor restoration project.
Our customer wasn’t sure of the exact sizes so we obtained a sample to be measured and tested by our QA team. A drawing was then created and parts were manufactured by our sister company Smith Bullough.
We are continually improving our manufacturing capabilities which allows us to supply more of the weird and wonderful fasteners.
Nylon (Nyloc) Insert Nuts- BSW, BSF, UNC & UNF and Metric
A Nyloc (nylon insert) Nut is a torque prevailing nut which uses a plastic/nylon insert located towards the top of the nut, reducing its inner diameter, which then deforms over the mating thread.
Metric is very popular but the imperial sizes are becoming more obselete as demand drops.
Not to worry! Thomas Smith Fasteners stock a full range of all imperial diameters from 1/4″ to 1″ as we supply to many different industries including Classic Car Restoration & Heritage Rail.
You can order today via our online shop. If the item you require is not listed, we may still stock it or be able to source it.
Please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
Last week our sister company Smith Bullough manufactured 3/4″ & 1″ Washers in S32760 (Super Duplex Material)
Why Super Duplex?
Super Duplex UNS S32760 is among the most common super duplex grade in the market. UNS S32760 is a duplex stainless steel especially designed for service in aggressive chloride-containing environments.
Below you can see how the material looked before we began manufacture, during the process and finally the finished product.
Our customer required an urgent turnaround on this order. Thanks to our expertise and machinery we were able to produce parts within 24 hours.
Recently we supplied a customer with some bar turned 2BA Hex Bolts to a bespoke drawing for a Classic Car restoration project. The bolts where manufacured by our sister company Smith Bullough
