Where to get Bigheads?

Hi Guys

I need 6, M8 x 40mm male threaded Bigheads, ideally with the large round based, in stainless obviously.

Bighead themselves have a minim order quantity of 100 and the distributors that have given me either do not supply that size or also have minimum order quantities. Force4 sell them individually but not in that size. Anyone have any ideas of where I could get them from, preferably Portsmouth/Southampton area or mail order? Going to Beaulieu on Sunday to have a look but need a back-up plan just in case.

Thanks

Andy

You've been over to my home haven't you?

Come on over and have a look at what I've got. Garage is in a mess, don't quite know what a BIG head is, but if it's some kind of bolt I'm sure you'll find something suitable.

PM me if you want my phone number?

Can't help you out if you're after that exact type of fastening, best wait and see what Nugent has. But if you want penny washers, m8x40 bolts or screws and get someone to weld em together then I'm pretty sure I can help out.
