There is a place in town. Mcfadden-Dale Hardware. Its like a mini Graingers. Only for tools and hardware. I have never not found a nut/bolt/screw/bushing/nylon or aluminum spacer, etc. etc. I needed. Usually odd ball stuff. Standard or metric, steel, nylon, brass, aluminum or stainless, they have it. And they have excellent pricing for drills, taps, reams and other machining tools. I can walk around in there like a kid in toys for us.
Tools are like 4 wheel drive. You might only use it once a year, but when you need it, its worth way more than the cost. If you've wrenched on anything at all you know having the correct tool can make a job only 30mins instead of 2hrs. And not damage what you're fixin. Ha!
That said, I am in the process of thinning my heard. After almost 40 years of hoarding
, uh..... gathering tools, its time......
Sorry for the thread drift......
