Greetings!

I'm looking for a source of AN (aircraft grade) metric bolts, nuts and spacers for my gyro. I can find the items that I want on my manufacturer's site (Celier/Argo Aero), but they're marked up about ten fold. I need them for general repairs and my condition inspection(s).

Thanks in advance,

Tim!

To be more specific, I'm looking for AN/aircraft grade:

>M8 x 65 socket head bolts;
>M8 nylock nuts; and,
>10.3mm (ID), 12mm (OD), 3mm width bushings/spacers.

Thanks,

Tim!

Hi Tim
I was hoping someone with more experience building would speak up.
I buy form Aircraft Spruce bolt selector: http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/stpages/anbolts.php
Ive heard of Alibaba but not purchased anything from them = https://www.alibaba.com/premium/nut_bolt.html?src=sem_bing&cmpgn=132537187&adgrp=3642036951&tgt=kwd-39412829749:loc-190&KwdID=39412829749&mtchtyp=b&bdmtchtyp%20=bb&ntwrk=o&device=c&creative=14787921277&p1=default&p2=default&p3=default&Query=AN%20bolts

John, et al -

I don't know what I was doing wrong, but I finally find the bolts and nuts at Fastenal. My first inclination was Aircraft Spruce, too, but they don't really stock much in the way of metric nuts & bolts.

Still looking for the spacers, though... :)

I believe true AN hardware is not made in metric. The metric equivalent corrodes very easy.
