Digi Key hardware FTW!
« on: April 20, 2011, 04:08:28 pm »
I took this pic recently:


My Grand Dad gave me this digikey machine screw assortment when I was maybe 13 years old.  It's been my 20+ year companion through the guitar and amp phase, car audio phase, DJ'ing and sound reinforcement phase, and now the byoac thing.  There's nothing like knowing you have the bolt for the job.  I remember him everytime I see it. 

What I have is this:

If I was buying again i would get this:  Phillips head drive and smaller sizes, which are more useful.

Not a review as such, but they have been useful.

Thanks for sharing the link.  Seems like a great way to stock your supplies on your workbench.

You can never have too much hardware.
Harbor Freight is also a good source for hardware and you get a lot for cheap.
