We manufacture a wide variety of special fasteners in our onsite workshop, as these two recent examples demonstrate!
Our fasteners often have special head shapes or threadforms, for example these forged square square head blanks:
But some of our specials have no head and no threads, such as these clevis pins:
We can produce special fasteners in most materials (steel, stainless steel and exotics) and grades, and offer threadforms including Metric, BSF, BSW, BA, UNC & UNF.
To enquire or for further information, please contact us and we’ll be happy to assist you in finding the right fastener to fit your requirements.
Here’s another great example of our how our onsite special fastener manufacturing capabilities complement our extensive stocked range of standard industrial fasteners and fixings.
These M48 x 200 Grade 12.9 Hexagon Bolts were manufactured in our machine shop using a CNC.
The order, for a customer in Sweden, was won due to our quick delivery time, and was despatched to the customer within a few days.
The customer was very impressed with the quality of the bolts and in particular the threads.
We stock standard bolts, nuts and fasteners in Metric, BSW (Whitworth), BSF, BA, UNC and UNF threadforms, and can manufacture non-standard sizes in most materials, grades and surface finishes. We also offer in-house quality testing facilities and are fully accredited to ISO 9001:2008.

Overnight, we were able to reverse engineer large 2.1/4″ diameter special steel socket screws into smaller 7/8″ diameter screws that enabled an urgent assembly to be delivered on time.
Here is a picture of one of the 2.1/4″ diameter socket screws:
And here are the finished 7/8″ diameter socket cap screws:
Thomas Smith Fasteners hosted a meeting of the Wigan Borough Manufacturing Group on the 3rd May 2012.
The WBMG is a group of local manufacturing businesses and professional advisors.
The meeting was preceded by a tour of our facilities, which included the trade counter, warehouse, manufacturing and quality.
A Wigan Borough Council photographer visited our premises on Monday 9th January and took plenty of good manufacturing shots for a new eCommerce Framework brochure.
We are delighted to help the local economy.
As a relevant aside, we have plenty of pictures and videos of our products and facilities that will be uploaded to our site soon, so be sure to keep checking the site!
