Blacksmith Bolt & Rivet Supply

Summer Store Closing in August should be short and shipping delays should be minimal. Specific dates affected will be posted later.

Important Shipping Notice:

As of January 17, 2016, there have been some increases in Priority Mail rates. See our Shipping Info Page for more details.

As of January 17, 2016, there are major changes to Priority Mail Express. The good news is that the cost of a Flat Rate Express Padded Envelope, good for up to 8 to 10 lbs. of material, has only risen from $22 to $26. The bad news is that the Medium Express Mail Box is no longer a Flat Rate Service; it is now weight and distance based. A 40 lb box going to Zone 9 will now cost $270, instead of $45 and change. Yes, we think it to be outrageous, but outrage never seems to deter the government from doing something, does it?

So, now that the cost of poor planning has risen sharply, you may want to consider having us use UPS for your expedited (faster than regular Priority Mail) orders over $35. We can ship on your UPS account; just provide the account number in the customer notes area during checkout. We would then refund the default Priority Mail shipping at the time we print the shipping label. is the supplier of choice for specialty fasteners in the Blacksmithing, Metalworking and Woodworking communities, Restoration work, and the Building Trades.

In the image above, you will find the cornerstones of our inventory: Square Head Lag Bolts, Square Head Machine Bolts, with square nuts, of course, Slotted Head Wood Screws, and Solid Iron Rivets.

Wood Screws include the traditional head styles, Oval, Round and Flat. We have a few brass and bronze wood screws, too, and finishes on steel screws can include Plain, Black Oxide, Bronze Plate, Nickel Plate, or even Gold Plate.

We also have a few Iron Tire Bolts, Plow Bolts, Step Bolts and Carriage Bolts in stock. For these and the machine bolts, in addition to the square nuts, we also have flat washers and split lockwashers.

Among the Tools we offer are 8-Point Sockets to drive Square Head Bolt and Screws, Fuller Countersinks and Tapered Drills, our own Standard Screw Gauge, and more.

Nothing ruins the appearance of a nice piece of metalwork faster than a hex-head bolt or a Phillips head screw. Accordingly, you will not find any of either one of those items here.

Recognizing that the majority of blacksmiths and other metalworkers may wish to make their fasteners more than simply functional, we have chosen not to carry zinc-plated or hot-dip-galvanized fasteners. The material finish will be either plain, plain & oiled, or black oxide, in almost all instances. No one really wants to have to burn the zinc off their fasteners before re-working them. 

In summary, we have the following Three Rules:

No Hex Heads, No Hex Nuts! No Philips Heads, and No Combo Heads! No Zinc Plating, No Hot Dip Galvanized!

Of course, since we specialize in old-fashioned fasteners, you can also assume several additional rules, including but not limited to: No Pop-Rivets, No Torx, No Metric, and No Combo.
