    More recovery gear/rigging - 1\" shackles

    Hey All,
    Found a good supplier of stuff (chain, nylon slings, hydraulics, industrial hose, gaskets)

    I purchased a pair Columbus McKinnon 1" shackles (galvanized, orange screw) from them on ebay. Called them to transact and find out what else they have - good people and great prices ($19.50 ea for the shackles). The shackles appear as good as or better than the Crosbys I have.


    This is the company - www.samsonind.com
    ebay id - sishv

    They said they are working on an online store that they expect public by July.

    Make sure they say made in the USA - rated higher in most cases and after comparing the same size side-by-side there really is no comparison....

    If those are Crosby or CM you got a great deal.

    Not many tractor supply shops in the Bay /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
