Stainless brackets?

Does anyone have any idea where I could get a dozen or so stainless 90 brackets, about an inch or more on each 'limb'?

Google has let me down and the only ones I can find on eBay are in Hong Kong.

Cheers
Hugh

Are you in a real hurry? I've had stuff from HK before and it usually takes about a week for delivery.

Just watch for the grade of steel.

Sorry mick, I accidentally quoted you instead of the OP.

I blame the Strongbow!

Any local fab shop will knock them up for not much. What kind of strength are you looking for? what is their intended use?

They're only to keep some railings in place where they are starting to bow so nothing too taxing. I'd have thought they'd be common off-the-shelf items!

Daft as it sounds, have you looked in B&Q?

Stainless hinges and catches I've had from HK have rusted very quickly. If you buy from there make sure they state grade 316 stainless is used.
