Who sells cheap ring bolts? 5-Jun-2014 At 12:01:10 PM nmonteith

There are plenty of places selling 10mm stainless rod suitable for making u-bolts. Prices vary massively by no logical reason. Try and dress up the part (as a tradie) when buying it, and turn up at 'tradie' hours (7am) to fit in with the normal customers. For example I got a 40% discount the other day buying glue from Sydney Tools - they said it was $100, I said I had bought stuff previously - they then said it was $60. ?!!!

>Do you have to buy in

Yes. These sorts of shops aren't exactly kitted out for people buying a metre at a time!

If you can't afford $2 a bolt then you probably should reconsider your bolting plans! Any form of 'cheap' Chinese or homemade ringbolt will be around $3 a bolt anyway.
