    Does anyone have a source of exotic material fastners selling small lots?
    Local is nice, Australia prefered, OS OK.

    I'm looking for a dozen 8x1.25 x30mm threaded all the way bolts in a highish tensile aluminium.

    Then there are a whole lot of other sizes I could replace with lighter materials if I wasn't buying a box of 100 for every size.
    Some Titanium bling would be nice.
    So far my online searching gets me sources with a whole box minimum.
    Local Nuts & Bolts guys are whole box on special orders too.

    I've used BMC Fasteners in Toowoomba for stuff like Rivnuts etc and been able to purchase in baggies of 25?

    They (Pro Bolt) do titanium, stainless and aluminium. You can buy them individually or bike/section specific kits

    Lightweight ?

    You can get nylon ones ...
    for a lot more money fiberglass ... but they are hard to come by.

    Whatever ... be careful with the strain and sheer on the bolt ... the replacment has to withstand this no matter how good it looks or how little it weights.

    Another possible source .. though I use them for stainless not al ..
    Coventry fasteners.. <cite>www.[B]coventryfasteners[/B].com.au/</cite>
