An Introduction to Industrial Hardware Supplies


If you're a newly qualified contractor, you may be seeking out info about tools and supplies. This blog post breaks down some of the most common types of industrial hardware available so that you can decide which type of hardware is best for your needs.

Nuts and Bolts

Nuts and bolts are essential for almost any construction project. They come in various sizes depending on their intended use—from small screws used for light fixtures to large bolts used for heavy machinery support beams. Nuts and bolts typically come with either hexagonal heads (hex bolts) or square heads (carriage bolts), depending on their purpose.

Hinges and Fasteners

Hinges are pieces of metal used as joints between two objects so that they may move freely around each other in one plane (e.g., doors). Fasteners hold two objects together by passing through them both—such as nails, screws or rivets—but don't allow them to pivot relative to each other as hinges do. Both hinges and fasteners come in many different sizes depending on their intended use, so it's important to do your research before selecting which ones are best suited for your project.

Machine Tools

Machine tools are devices used when fabricating metal parts or components from raw materials such as steel plates or sheets. These machines range from simple handheld drills all the way up to computer-controlled CNC machines capable of producing complex shapes with intricate detail quickly and reliably. Different types of machine tools include lathes, milling machines, drill presses and grinders—each one designed for its own specific purpose when constructing components from various materials such as wood or metal alloys like aluminium or stainless steel.

Power Tools and Accessories

Power tools are handheld motorized devices powered by electricity that use cutting blades (saws), sanders/grinders (drills), clamping mechanisms (clamps) etc., enabling users to cut through harder materials than they could by using manual labour alone. Alongside these tools come accessories such as drill bits, saw blades, grinding wheels etc., which help increase accuracy during fabrication processes by allowing precision control over the cutting process itself instead of relying solely upon manual labour alone.


By taking into account these points before investing in new equipment or materials, you can ensure that their investments pay off by providing quality workmanship within budget constraints—allowing greater flexibility when pricing out future projects.

Understanding Aspects of Industrial Supply

Gaining a good understanding of industrial supplies can really help a man to get ahead. I'm Jo and while I do not work directly in the industrial equipment or supply business, I have learnt a lot from my brother who works in a large factory in Sydney. I would often spend weekends down there watching the guys at work. Now and again, my brother would ask me to help him out so we could try and find a good deal on a new piece of kit. I did it, and I learnt a lot while I did it. I hope you like my blog.
