Does anyone know of a place that sells a good 'kit' of fasteners for smaller hobby projects? It would be great if it came sorted in some sort of labeled container. Just a good set of nuts, bolts and washers.
Most (if not all) of the larger hardware stores (at least in DK) have sets with assortments of the most used sizes (eg. nuts of 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10mm, equivalent sized sets of washers and bolts in a couple of lengths, although the bolt sets is usually limited to fewer different diameters to make up for the different lengths). This doesn't stop with fasteners, I have similar sets of rubber O-rings, screwdriver bits and such and over time, I just refill the sizes I use the most.
One thing to keep in mind about the boxed sets is their rather poor steel and poor precision, but they're nice to have anyway.
