Hi .org.

 

I thought it may be interesting to share details of a few online services or shops that I recommend, and for others to do the same... would be sensible to keep it to businesses that have a national reach.  (I know there is another thread in the members section but it's a bit tired now :) )

 

My list:

 

Accu.co.uk (Accu) http://Accu.co.uk

Precision screws, nuts and other hardware.  They aren't cheap but have a very extensive range and have been very consistant in terms of quality of product and service.

 

Mouser.co.uk (Mouser Electronics) http://Mouser.co.uk

Electronic components.  Recently wanted to replace my secret button as it was broken, and decided to replace the connector as well.  I stumbled upon them, and was staggered by the sheer volume of parts from automotive to home automation... it is impressive.

 

Carbuildersolutions.com (Car Builder Solutions) http://Carbuildersolutions.com

Lots of fastenings, switches, gauges, edge trim, adhesives... you name it.  Used them for a number of years and always consistant.

 

I'd be interested to see what you've all found :) thumbsup

3dprint-uk.co.uk (3D Print UK) https://www.3dprint-uk.co.uk/

SLS 3D Printing... just upload your STL, get a quote, select your options, pay and wait a few days for quality prints to arrive.  Used 3 times and always been happy with the results from them.

theplasticpeople.co.uk (The Plastic People) https://www.theplasticpeople.co.uk/

Ordered sheet plastic from these "people" a number of times... generally PP sheet.  Just specify plastic type, thickness, width/height and quantity and wait a few days.  Prices seem good.

 

lasermaster.co.uk (Laser Master) https://www.lasermaster.co.uk/

Ordered large spacer washers cut to size and custom shapes by uploading a diagram.  You can specify type of metal, thickness etc., etc.  Used them 3 or 4 times and happy with price and speed of delivery!

merlinmotorsport.co.uk (Merlin Motorsport) https://www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk/

Based out of the paddock at Castle Combe and have an extensive range of all sorts motorsport related.  Similarish theme and could be considered as an alternative to Demon Tweeks for some stuff.  Walk into their shop at Castle Combe or order online.

 

dfaulknersprings.com (D Faulkner Springs) http://www.dfaulknersprings.com/

Well known and respected spring manufacturer.  Order direct from their site.  Only used once but selection, service, packaging, delivery were all excellent.
