1946 Sunbeam Talbot SupremeToday we received a visit from one of our local customers who have been purchasing Classic Car fixings from Thomas Smith Fasteners for many years.We were lucky enough to take a few photos of the beautiful Sunbeam Talbot which has been fully restored.#sunbeamtalbot#classiccar#restoration#fasteners#ukmanufacturing#thomassmithfasteners
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!
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
Due to ongoing improvements in our manufacturing capabilities we are now able to supply more of the weird and wonderful threadforms in all shapes and sizes.
We recently exported 1″ x 4″ BSW Setscrews Grade U BS 1083 to a client who was restoring old British made dryer cylinders on paper machines from pre 1970’s.
Grade U is not a popular grade in BSW but because of the amount of heat that the machines produce the client specificed Grade U, which will be safe in temperatures around 200 celcius.
Our sister company Smith Bullough manufactured these to specification in just 3 weeks which included forge, threading and heat treatment.
TSF Wigan, recently welcomed Kim Needham to our fastener family, in the role of Sales & Business Development Executive. Kim has previously worked in the fastener industry for over 10 years, so brings knowledge and experience to our team.
One of Kim’s main roles will be to help develop and maintain customers, as well as forging new and exciting avenues for the company.
We wish Kim all the best in her new role on this exciting journey.
We recently produced in our factory at Smith Bullough a part for the Offshore Industry. Tensioned risers (TTRs) have been used for deepwater applications in the Gulf of Mexico, offshore West Africa, and offshore Southeast Asia. Dry tree riser systems attached to floating production units such as spars, tension leg platforms (TLPs), and deep‐draft semisubmersibles are continually being considered for future developments, and designs have been developed for ultradeepwater. TTRs are complex dynamic structures, and the design of these riser systems is primarily governed by loading from the environment and the floater motions.
The assemblies are made from 2 riser bars, 2 studbolts and 8 full nuts.
The client wanted Western European Material with full traceability. This is no problem for us with our increased manufacturing capacity and knowledge of traceable materials to the original billets.
