Tiny nuts, bolts, studs & washers


Recommended Posts

At the Nat's I saw packaged nuts, bolts, washers, and washer/stud combinations. I thought they were really expensive for the quantities. These items were really tiny and appear ideal for my applications. I believe the thingies were on the order of perhaps 1 - 2 milimeters.

 

Can anyone point me to sources for these? Dummy parts are o.k. as they will not be functional.

There is an ebay seller - rbmotion - that has very tiny items like you describe.

 

Although I just did a quick search... he has nothing posted at the moment. He usually has stuff up 24-7, He may still be recovering from the nats for all I know. His stuff is worth a good look. On ebay use the advanced search to search by SellerID.

 

 

Here is his web site too R&B Motion

I use a lot of his stuff and I can vouch for the quality. He is always very prompt and doesn't charge a ton for shipping.

You might wish to check with you LHS and ask about Grandt Line products. They are made for model trains and include such items as you describe.

I use GrandtLine in my models. Some model shops that carry a lot of RR stuff usually carry that also.

I just got some scale nuts from Verlinden today. These are great for adding that extra detail, especially for scratchbuilt items.
