Source for unusual 316 SS fasteners?
1 Attachment(s)
I'm having trouble finding replacement machine screws (bolts with a round/truss head phillips) for fittings like the bob stay, whisker stays, gammon, back stay chain plate. They are mostly 3/8'' x 4-8''. They are pieces that are seen, so hex bolts wouldn't look right. I have tried all the usual suspects- JamesTown, McMaster, Fastenal. Anyone have any ideas?

Chesapeake Marine Fasteners was bought by Fawcetts. Their entire inventory is at Fawcett's new location in Eastport, next to MacDonalds: 919 Bay Ridge Road, Annapolis, MD‎ - (410) 267-8681‎

If they don't have it, they can order it.
