A little bit of help from my US friends
« on: September 13, 2013, 04:16:10 AM »
I'm trying to purchase a few screws and washers from Albany County Fasteners:

Finishing Cup Washer 410 SS - 1/4" (#14) Qty-100


Phillips Flat Head Wood Screws 18/8 SS - #8 x 1-3/4" Qty-25

Phillips Oval Head Machine Screw 18-8 SS - 1/4"-20 x 2" Qty-25

But because I'm in the UK they want to charge $60 for postage when at best it should be $20.

Would it be possible to have the order sent over to someone on here then simply forwarded on? Or can anyone suggest another retailer with a better price for international shipping.

Thanks!

Be wary of 'Albany county fasteners '

Their website does not give their address. I live near Albany,NY so I contacted thm and asked where they are located to save on shipping......

Their answer??

New JESEY. (sic)

They cant even spell Jersey. The internet (google) claims they are in Albany,NY.

Sounds fishy to me.
