Anyone have good sources for various sized grade 8 bolts that don't require a $20 minimum?

My local PB has a good assortment of bolts of all kinds.

A $20 min. isn't hard to reach when buying bolts so think it out a little more and like was stated McMaster-Carr is a good source.

Also try your local GM or Ford dealer. They have a misc. fastener book that will have so many different choices your head will spin. Basically look on a car and find what you want and them describe it to the counter guy and let him find it for you, agood guy will know what to do and if they don't go to another dealer. I purchased 90% of my fasteners for my car this way and you will get the best coatings and correct shear strength for most all of the applications you are looking for and sometimes the price is unbelievably cheap and sometimes expensive but always worth it to know you are getting automotive fasteners rather than standard hardware. There is a difference in some fasteners from the auto industry because some fasteners are hardened in specific places to help with the crumple zone they put in the cars these days.

There are a few more places I can't remember but Aircraft Spruce is one that comes to mind right now that has been brought up here before.
