I have been doing a lot of little projects lately and also find myself making all kinds of shop jigs, storage, fixing things for others, and anything else that comes my way. But I’ve been hit with a problem that I really hate… running to the hardware store for hardware (go figure) way too often! Every time I pick something up I usually pick up a few extra which has helped a bit. I have some money to spend on my shop and decided that it would be great if I could make my own mini (very mini) hardware aisle :)
I want to build a collection of the most common screws, nuts, bolts, washers, and ‘fasteners’ in general. However, I am not looking to get too crazy with this. I don’t need an entire aisle filled with racks of fasteners but I do want to have all the basic things that get used often readily available in my shop.
In terms of type and size, what are the most basic fasteners that a shop should not be without?
