In the past when I ordered snaps from Fasnap, they sent me "Premium".  I never specified, that's just what I got, so I assumed "Premium" was the default.  Fast track to today -->  they sent "Economy" so I called and asked if there is a quantitative difference:

1.  There is less brass.
2.  The nickel plating is the same.
3.  The dimensions are the same but the walls are thinner (because there is less brass).
4.  Premium and Economy can be used together in the same application.
5.  Premium is significantly more expensive, like 30% more.

Fasnap users... do you demand Premium snaps?  Or is Economy adequate for your needs?

Also, since I haven't ordered in a while, they dropped my 15% distributor discount. *whine*

Just got off the phone with Scovill (DOT).  They only make one "level" of quality.  I'm forwarding some Fasnap samples so they can match them to theirs.  They were unaware of Fasnap's two levels.

This is kinda nuts.  Scovill used to sell their own setting machine, but now sells Fasnap machines.

My head hurts.

That's good to know - thanks.  I've used DOT 20L before, but not 24L (which is what I need).  I used to buy from Fasnap because I got a discount, but looks like those days are over.
