• 10 Years for the Fastener Folks with Follow Through

    Date: 2016.10.17 | Category: Fastener Industry | Tags:

    This month includes the 10 year anniversary for the founding of two great advances in the fastener industry.
    October 10 marks the day in 2006 that Traveling Salesman started his fastener industry blog Fastenerblog.net that has been the go-to blog for interesting industry news and discussion ever since.
    October 16 is 10 years since FastenersClearingHouse.com brought fastener search into the 21st century. They posted yesterday on FastenerBlog with some of the history of the search tool’s founding, including a link to this article from Link magazine. I remember that article. Those gold lock washers in the photo burned my eyes as I knew that not only had someone already beaten me to the punch by starting a great fastener industry blog, but now these sons of a gun had ruthlessly stolen my idea for getting fastener search out of big clunky books on a shelf and onto the Net. Of course, it turns out that not only did it take people who were ready and willing to do the work and put themselves out there, but TS, Brian and Eric have all shown that they have the tools and they have the talent to do it right.
    Congratulations on ten years, and thank you for moving some important things from “ought’a be” to “is” in our industry!
