Experiences with www.hardwaresource.com?

I'm looking for a source of 8mm Soss barrel hinges, but that particular size seems hard to locate. I found them at www.hardwaresource.com, but their prices for the larger sizes are so much lower than other places I've seen (like 1/3 as much) that I'm leery. Anyone done business with them before?

I bought about $120 worth of cabinet hinges from them last year, no complaints at all. Not really much to say, I paid them money, they sent me hinges. Their prices on the soss hinges seems good, but I don't see the price difference that you're seeing- my other go-to hardware source is lee valley, but like you say, they only offer down to 10mm soss hinges.

I've used them a few times for cabinet hardware and it has always showed up in a timely manner. Never had a bad deal...

That's one vote of confidence, thanks. I actually found the same hinges through Amazon, more expensive than HardwareResource but less than Woodcraft. I've used 10mm versions before but in 1/2" stock that doesn't leave much room for error.

And that's two...probably enough to make it worth keeping them on the vendor list.
