Title: Help! Where to find 8BA 3/16 screws?
Post by: kno3 on May 23, 2009, 04:51:23 pm
Hello!

I need some 8BA 3/16 screws, either brass or iron, preferably with hexagonal head. Does anyone know a source for these?

Hi Kno3,

Type 'Model engineering supplies' into Google and you should get plenty of places.

I tend to stick with Reeves 2000, Blackgates Engineering and Steamfittings.co.uk.

You pays your money you makes your choice.
