Small Screws.

Post by Anthony » 05 Mar 2019, 20:32

I need help sourcing very small screws please, tried modelfixings, nothing this small.
5-6mm long, the thread is a self tapper around 2mm and the head is roughly 3.5mm, should almost be a panhead as well, very little room for the protruding head. TIA Ant.

Hi Antony,

I haven't looked to see if they list the size you want but I use 'Kayfast' for a lot of my fastenings. I have always had good service too.

Model fixings have very small self tappers which look small enough. I've used quite a few of the 0 size.

Hi Anthony
I have had good luck finding very small screws at AliExpress. It may take a couple of weeks but I got several hundred various sizes for a few $ used on my ASH 26 aileron servo cover plates.
