    Nice selection. It would be hard for me to justify that expenditure since I have a couple of hardware stores only minutes away!!

    That's a good price. Here it's about $1.69 for grade 5 and $3 a pound for grade 8s.

    Tractor Suply rules for bolts!!! I dont know any prices right off hand but they are the cheapest anywhere for all bolts. They do each grade by the pound. The grade 5 bolts dont have the shiny silver finish, they are plain green. I'm thinking thats why there so much damn cheaper. Grade 8 is still the usual gold though, but still cheaper. I've been thinkin about getting some drawers and stockin up on bolts but I'm fixin to go off to college so not much use to...

    Next time you go to the wrecking yard load your pockets. Used bolts are good to have around too. Not that I've ever done that or anything.
