    Default Timber join plates: need to find a shop that stocks

    Hi all

    I need the following for a scaffold deck that needs some TLC:




    My local Harties bunch don't have.

    Any ideas?

    Builders? Timber City?

    Saw them at our local Builders the other day so they most probably will have.

    Penny Pinchers/BUCO should also have them.

    OK thanks to Centurion Builders I made a 120km trip for nothing.

    I'll have to make Grypa plates work.

    The only reason I use Builders Whorehouse is because they are closer than BUCO if I'm in a hurry. I seldom walk out completely satisfied, though.

    WTF is a gang nail? Sounds like something involving sex?

    yes, that's what I bought because nobody seems to have the flat galvanised join plates any more

    which is strange because I actually bought some when I first built the deck

    It doesn't help you much, but Penny Pinchers/BUCO in Montagu Gardens had lots of them in different sizes a few weeks ago when I was there.

    yeah that's a bit of a drive for me

    1400km for some metal plates might be a bit far

    There's a Buco that just opened in Wonderpark, they may be able to order for you if they do not have. New branch eager to win customers type of situation.
