I seem to have misplaced the 16 (2 x 8) screws from my two front door sill plates (I am sure I will find them - eventually). In the interim, I tried to buy some Geno Industries screws this AM. I was interested in the Auveco 1793 (6 x 5/8" chrome) and 1796 (6 x 1" chrome) sold up here through LORDCO as Geno 19-1793 and 19-1796. Nothing on the rack so I tried 19-1801 (8 x 1" with a No. 6 head) which was on the rack. My price around $3.50 for 10.

Got home. Contacted Auveco and Geno directly. Turns out the 1793 and 1796 are no longer offered in blister packs, only boxes of 100, hence not on the blister pack rack. But I can't buy from either of them directly, I have to go through Lordco or Wurth. So I place an order for a box of 100 for both the 19-1793 and the 19-1796 with Lordco (Wurth's minimum order was 200). The 1793 (is back ordered - figures - it's the one I need) BUT the 1796 is in stock in the warehouse, about 2 hrs away. At my local LORDCO this afternoon. Yippee.

"How much?", I cringed. Well sir, with your cash discount, $12.97. For 100. $3.50 for 10 (equivalent) - go figure.

Why didn't I order these before, you could well ask.?

Don't know.
