RTL Fasteners

The advent of mail order fasteners has changed the game.

Splash

Why are so many model builders buying their fasteners by mail?

From RTL Fasteners:

Not long ago there were few options. You went to the store and hoped that they had a particular size screw so that you could finish your RC project. Sometimes they had what you were looking for and sometimes they didn’t. Then along came RTL Fasteners and changed all of that. Now a large number of hobbyists are buying their hardware mail-order....and here’s why:

• We offer only high quality hardware.....Able to take the stress of engine powered RC aircraft.

• Hard to find items are always available.

• Specializing in fasteners allows our company to pass along huge savings to you.

• It’s super convenient. You can shop from the privacy of your own home.

• Fasteners are packaged in more logical quantities….. 4 screws are often not enough!

• It’s the best way to purchase a wide variety of hardware including model building fastener assortments.

• RTL Fasteners is the home of the “Master Builder Assortment “.

• Shipping is fast and reasonably priced.

Our company is well known and respected throughout the RC community. We have been in business for over a decade and are committed to providing excellent quality hardware at affordable prices. Check us out online and see why your fellow RC pilots are choosing to purchase their hardware by mail from the trusted source.....”RTLFASTENERS.COM

I have these. My problem is I use some of the sizes more than others, and I need to order some replacements. Good product, nice organization trays. Wish they came with pre-printed adhesive labels (they may now, mine didn't).

I bought a small hand held Dymo label writer. Makes adding labels to bins, organizers and file folders quick and easy.

+1 on the Dymo writers. I have ADD & CRS and I'd be lost in the shop without my Dymo labeler. I got started a long time ago with Micro Fasteners as opposed to RTL, but I have never heard ANYTHING but good stuff about both companies. Sure beats buying the little packs at the LHS or hardware stores IF you can find what you need there!

My wife and I have a lot of stuff and getting reasonable presents is difficult. I saw the RTL ad and thought it might be handy - sometime. It was a Christmas present for me a couple of years ago. Well, you don't need it until you need it and this set has been VERY handy and I recommend it.

Very professional staff, who responded to my emails quite promptly. I guess what Im saying is you should give Tamara a raise.

And fast delivery. I have my size assortment figured out after 20 years. So I order in bulk usually once a year. More often when I need something unusual.

Great company to deal with

I have ordered a bunch for them lately. Really great specials running these last couple of months on their large assortments. Fast shipping too.

I talked to them about the only thing they are missing... some really high quality taps and dies for these small dimension bolts in both SAE and Metric. They said they were looking but evidently could not find a source.

Tom

PS: If anyone DOES know a source for good taps and dies in these small SAE and Metric sizes, pipe up now.

I get mine from Enco, also my other machine tool supplies. Not high quality, but good enough for the hobbiest.

Yeah, I use ENCO too... but as you said, some of their stuff is, well, crap. Their end mills are generally pretty good though. I have used them for years in my woodworking shop for my mortising machine and in my plunge routers.

E/Z Connectors Nylon Keepers

I have a ton of E/Z connectors but not the retention hardware that usually comprises of a steel star washer and a nylon keeper. I need both. Where can I get this hardware. Bear in mind I do not need the connector itself, I have plenty of those.

I got the metric and SAE master builder assortments for Christmas last year- thank you, dear wife! Awesome stuff. It's so nice to have it all at hand.
