    Finally you don't have to buy 100 at a time from China or pay outrageous prices from Fastenal or McMaster-Carr (I still love McM-C). Trimcraft Aviation now has small quantities for reasonable pricing and his shipping is really good too.

    I have ordered from Trimcraft many times and they always ship fast and I have had no problems with any order.

    McMaster is actually cheaper (not by much 1 penny per piece actually!) but like you said you have to order large quantities.

    I use these all the time (M3 and M4 mostly) for exactly that.. Heat bonding threads.
    Love it. Your hole (if you make one) only has to be close :)

    Dang! A week ago I bought a lifetime supply of heat inserts from McMaster-Carr in various sizes. Still, an awesome, low cost and easy solution for many jobs. Would be great if someone would bundle an assortment of sizes in a small quantity and sell as a kit.
