After searching countywide for a left hand threaded nut at Home Depot, Lowes, and major garden centers to repair my weedwacker, I called Mid-State Bolt & Scr.. They said to bring in my part to see if it required a english or metric size. When I arrived they measured it and returned with a metric course L.H. threaded nut which didn't work. They went in the back and returned with a metric fine L.H.threaded nut which fit perfectly. I leave this place with a nut that wasn't a special order and a 2 week wait with a double digit price tag. The service is great, the employees are great, and the price was great. Oh! and not one of them said "just turn the nut over if you need a left hand threaded nut", as I was told at one of my earlier visited establishments. They know their business and are willing to help.
