Blum and Other Brands - Sources with Best Service and Value
« on: September 02, 2019, 09:45 AM »
Where is everybody sourcing their cabinet hardware from?

Locally I have Wurth, Woodcraft, Home Depot, A and M, and a couple of others.

Does anyone have a favorite vendor who will discount for volume?

Wurth without a doubt for pros.  Woodcraft, Rockler and the big box stores cater to DIYers.

I tried Wurth back home. They never responded. Now they're trying to get my business, go figure.

Wurth is OK if you buy lots of hardware per year. I can get better prices from Amazon on lots of things Wurth sells.

HDL  always has good prices.

For the none professional, Woodworkers Hardware is the retail side of HDL.

I always go through AH Turf. The prices seem reasonable for the quantities I need and they stock everything. All items arrive in a single package instead of multiple packages over a weeks long time period.

FWIW, my Wurth location has always given me good pricing and service regardless of how much I buy.  I've even returned items for credit a year later with no restocking charge.  (I found a bag full of unused Blum undermount hardware when cleaning out my shop.)

For smaller quantities of specialized screws (and other small items), I sometimes use Rok Hardware on Amazon.  I think they repackage big boxes into smaller lots.

I also use Cornerstone for certain items like chrome closet rod.

I need to check out HDL.  Thanks for the tip @tjbnwi.

I was about to recommend the same. Often the prices are the lowest by quite a bit (at least on Blum and K&V) compared to even other specialty places such as woodworkershardware. The shipping has always been pretty fast too. I think Blum hinges are frequently half the price of Rockler and WoodCraft.

You will need to figure out what you need model number and type of door / opening, etc though. Because they sell them by the pieces. Hinge and mounting plate separately for the various applications.  As opposed a package that is set up for someone looking for "I want hinges for an inset door". In truth there are more variables than that.

In the past I’ve used both AH Turf and Custom Service Hardware

Have not done a detailed comparison lately.

Curious if any of you have tried Richelieu. The prices I see you paying from your supposed wholesalers are closer to what the retail prices we pay. As an example wholesale on 6 Blum Movento 22" slides with clips is 25.00 CDN which is approx. $18.75 USD. The price difference may be because of the your slides not being manufactured in Austria. Some may also find the Blum link interesting.
