What type of stainless are the screws you'll get at McMaster?
400 series stainless is magnetic. You'll want something in the 300 series, prefferedly 316 or at least 304. Lots of 440 and 303 around. ASK FIRST!

My local marine chandlery carries them. Not sure the price...

If you need to look further, try Jamestown Distributors.
