    Reaching out to all my fellow blinkies out there. :D


    I'm trying to track down some small screws for a project I'm working on but so far have come up short. :(
    Hoping someone out there has some contacts


    What I need are: box of 100
    Preferred:
    Socket head cap screws in 304 Stainless
    M1.6 x 30mm long and nuts to suit.


    To be honest the thread type doesn't matter so long as I have nuts to suit, whats critical is the thickness.
    1.5 - 1.8mm is preffered but I could get away with 2.0mm, would just mean about 80 holes to drill :eek:


    Cheers
    Rod

    Hi Rod


    You will find it hard to get your M1.6 in the 30mm as requested.


    I have had a quick look at what I can get from my suppliers and I did not find a M1.6 in the 30mm, you can get the 30mm in M2.5 but if you have the room to use a M3 you would be able to source them easily and save money as the smaller the go the less that are made and more expensive they become.


    If you need any assistance let me know, contact me at sales@screws2u.com.au

    Thanks for the help guys
    Ive had several local bolt joints and bearing joints chasing them for me with no luck
    I'm waiting on old mate from Choina to give me a quote on making some M1.6 x 30 socket heads.




    I musn't be looking in the right places? I haven't found any

    you'd probably even find them at Bunnings, its a very generic part. I checked my hardware suppliers catalogue, and they have lots of variations of it..


    Just give one of them a call, and ask.
