Hi

I used to buy my ba stuff from Mike Sandyford of "items" mail order

Is this the same source as the items ad in the magazine, I ask because it seems very hard, at least to me, to find anything on the website

EKP are good.

They manufacture their own BA fixings.

I also tend to use EKP though not using BA as much these days.

You could also try ba-bolts

I think the website to which you are referring is

https://itemsmailorderascrews.com/

Contact details and address are given at the bottom of the page. You can compare those with the magazine advert and see if they match. The blurb also says that the company was established in 1994 so that might provide a pointer if your purchases pre-dated that. The website states more than once that you should email for a price list and that transactions should be done over the phone. It is not an online shop.
