    Engineering bits and bobs

    What (if any) places in the US will export engineering fasteners,to NZ,that are cost effective at this end?.I am thinking of such as taper pins,tension pins etc.Big places like Grainger won't ship here directly to individuals,you have to use a parcel forwarding service that charge enormous shipping rates even for small packages.

    Will they generally let you ship via US mail....such as First class international post?

    Come to think of it (and having just checked my old e-mails) I tried Mcmaster last year,I tried to order a box of screws...and they declined my order....stating that due to the complexities of US export regulations they will not ship outside the US except to existing established business customers.Apparently it violates their export regulations to ship a box of Torx screws overseas....

    I know that one of the local engineering suppliers (Timaru) has got onto a American supplier - they have asked what they can supply and are waiting on the answer. Have asked about 8 x 40s etc
    So hopefully should know shortly.
