Nylon fasteners
« on: September 17, 2019, 01:41:18 PM »
Does anyone have a source for small nylon sheet metal screws, particularly 3 mm x 10 mm flat head?
I have exhausted my sources and can find no source online who carries these.
I need at least two of these to isolate a motor on a Kato loco.
Thanks for any help.

Sorry, Alan. I had looked so long I expected everyone to know that I need 3 mm x 10 mm flat head nylon sheet metal screws. I need at least two, more preferably.
I found the pan heads on ebay earlier but have found no flat head sheet metal screws.
I am considering purchasing flat head screws and attempting to recut the threads by screwing them into the motor. It may work, then again, it may not but it appears to be my only avenue at this time.
Thank you for your reply, Alan.
Cheers,
Cecil
