This is a post aimed primarily at our Australian members.

A lot of you guys may not be aware of a HUGE company here called Blackwoods as they don't exactly advertise. http://www.blackwoods.com.au/

Weather you are after screws, nuts, bolts, glues, sandpaper, sanding belts, steel, alloys, safety equipment, tools, saw blades etc, it is almost impossible to beat their range and quite close to impossible to beat their prices.

To give you an example. I just stopped by a local big box retailer who's name starts with Bunnin...... Their price for some stainless steel hex drive screws was $13.95 for a pack of six. I also priced a 2 pack of 100x915mm sanding belts, $16.

No way was I paying those prices, so I jumped back in the car and headed over to Blackwoods. Price on the screws was $7.65 for a pack of 100 and the sanding belts were $3.25 each. While I was there I also picked up a 25m roll of gaffer tape for $7 and a Mitutoyo digital micrometer for $77.

If you are ever in the market for any form of hardware, I highly recommend checking them out. They are pretty much everywhere or can do delivery.

Oh and if you want a free catalogue, they can be requested HERE, or viewed online HERE. 1808 pages of pure hardware porn. Go on, you know you want to.

Actually they are filled with great reference tables and data charts on most things. A great resource tool. I learnt quite a bit on what was available after reading this thing many years ago.

Strangely, Blackwoods and Bunnin.... are both owned by Wesfarmers. As is Coles, half of the service stations, half of the grog shops, insurance companies, Officeworks, safety outlets, etc. etc.

If it's not owned by Wesfarmers, there's a good chance it's owned by Woolies.

Agreed tho, their catalogue makes for hours of good reading.
