Hi. This is my first post here, so hope I am in the right place.

I am an Australian living in the Philippines and buying quality furniture hardware in small or large quantities is nearly impossible.

I know where to buy in AUstralia, but shipping and customs from there is difficult. Mush easier from the USA. I often ship parcels from Los Angeles, CA 90061.

So my question to fellow LJs is where in LA can I purchase online, furniture hardware in bulk at reasonable prices and quality? Things like Keyhole Hangers, Brass Hinges, Drawer Locks etc.

Also wish to buy band saw blades router bits etc.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Don’t see any helpful answers here. I’m thinking it’s because most LJ’s purchase from Woodcraft, and Other well know places like Highland Woodworking. Have you googled it?

Found this maybe you can work out something?

Good Luck

I buy from woodworkers hardware.

I have bought larger amounts of hinges, drawer slides and drawer pulls. You might take a look.

What do you mean by in bulk? Are you talking a couple hundred or couple thousand at a time? is a place to buy direct from the manufacturer.

I second McMaster-Carr. I’ve had great experiences with them. The only downside is that they don’t give you the price of shipping until after the order is completed and processed. They do this not to freak you out (although that can definitely happen) but because they charge exactly what the shipping company charges them and they update the order when the shipper gives them the bill based on size/weight of the total combined package.

I’ve used McMaster Carr too. In regards to shipping, I’ve found them to be very responsive to questions. I needed some 1/4” aluminum bar stock, and asked them for shipping estimates for 2 3-foot long pieces, or 1 6-foot long piece, and I had my answer within an hour or two. It was reasonable, I think to ship the 2 3-foot pieces of 1/4”x3” stock, it was around 8-10 bucks (domestic, though).
