This is simply the best hardware store I have ever come across. Andy is absolutely "on the ball" on all his materials and how to use them. I will make sure that everyone I know is aware of this Alladins cave for "makers and repairers". The photograph elsewhere in these reviews is just a hint of what is available. Lets make sure we support them!
Have made a few visits here for screw/nuts/washers I've needed for clock repair and railway modelling, always have what I need. There are masses of open boxes with all the fixings you can imagine, everything from 2mm screws to Whitworth nuts, just look round and pick out the ones you need. Lots of other hardware available too. Just hope this shop stays open, you can't get this stuff anywhere else in the area.
Great oldstyle hardware - ironmongery store I've been going to for 50 years. They have all sorts of nut and bolts all out on display you can wander round and chose yourself. Went in the other day for a thead coupler I couldn't even find on the internet. The guy made me one on the spot one with a tapping machine. Fantastic.
I used to go in here as a boy with my Dad when he had a project on the go
and I have used then ever since. Although I do not live locally now, I always
pop in when I am in the area, even just for a look. A true Aladins Cave of
those hard to find bits and nothings in a packet (fantastic)
Visited the shop yesterday for the first time and wasn't expecting the Aladdin's Cave that I found! Old-fashioned, in the best sense: excellent customer service, excellent product knowledge and wide-ranging stock. It's the sort of shop that you go into for one thing but come out with many more purchases. I resisted the temptation to ask for "four candles"! A highly recommended shop.
