How to get nuts and bolts in Fortnite?

In Fortnite Season 7, both mechanical parts and animal bones are replaced by nuts and bolts. Although, these new crafting materials are laid out across the island and might be difficult to find. In its most basic form, nuts and bolts would be found in red toolboxes. These toolboxes are rare to find. A player gets 1x Nuts and Bolts in every toolbox. They can also be located using a Recon Scanner in the game.  

Crafting material in Fortnite has become more simple. "Combine Nuts and Bolts with any Assault Rifle for a Burst Assault Rifle, with any Submachine Gun for a Rapid Fire SMG, and with any Shotgun for a Lever Action Shotgun. These craftable weapons don’t have pre-built versions to pick up, so collect any Nuts and Bolts you come across. It seems Nuts and Bolts have replaced Mechanical Parts and Animal Bones, which would explain why we haven’t seen any Makeshift weapons around." - Fortnite says in an official post on their website, guiding players about crafting material in Fortnite.
