Mcmaster-Carr. They have a website by the same name, order it now and it will be at your front door tomorrow afternoon.

Also try a hobby store. They usually have also sorts of odd hardware.

Towerhobbies.com also has a huge selection of hardware.

This should work:

Mcmaster Carr

Look for set screws under "Fasteners"

ETA: A 5/16-32 is an S.A.E. Extra Fine Standard Series Thread, an oddball pitch to say the least. What is the application? Can you substitute a coarser thread (by re-tapping)?

Good luck finding it.

I have had luck in the past with some oddball size (some gunsmith specific) screws from Brownells

http://www.brownells.com

good luck !

McMaster- Carr only has 5/16-24 or 18 not 32
Link Posted: 3/23/2006 7:12:42 PM EDT
Damn, I don't even have anything that oddball in the machine shop. Sorry.

Fastenal doesn't have it online - that's pretty odd in and of itself.

someone has to know where I can fine this

What about the company that made the item you're working on?

I've also found some fine-thread specialty screws at Ace Hardware. I needed 1/4-28 Allen cap screws for my bike and they had them.

Or, if possible, tap the hole to another size/thread.

Any "True Value" hardware stores in your area?

The ones I've been to all have an impresive stock of hard to find individual fastners.

all stores in area checked

Sorry

Ok, tell us...What are these screws for?
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 6:32:53 AM EDT
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 6:43:13 AM EDT
I think I'm gonna give up.
They make taps in this size you'd think a set screw would be as easy to find.
In case your wondering what it's for, the railed forearm from YHM has holes tapped in this size and I was going to use the holes for mounting purposes.
I e-mailed YHM and this was their reply, literally!
"check a hardware store"
Those fuckers tapped the hole for a reason maybe they would tell me where to find screws in that size. Fucking cocksuckers

yes, absolutely, positively.
Measured and thread pitch guage checked.
Even verified it with a tap.

Setscrews are made in NC and NF, not NEF. There isn't enough torque available from the small internal socket head.

they sell this to go in the hole but it's not what I need.


This swiveling sling mount stud threads right into our B.M.A.S. Four-Rail Forearms to provide a handy sling attachment point that won't deflect the barrel when the sling is pulled tight. It swivels easily 360° and is precision machined from steel with a black phosphate finish. Use with any standard quick detach sling loop hardware (Uncle Mike‘s type, etc.). Uses 5/16" x 32 threads.

This is always a good place to look, but I didn't see it there, myself. Feel free:

www1.mscdirect.com/CGI/N2SRBR I would think that if anyone had it, they would.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 7:44:02 AM EDT
Well, you COULD make your own...if you had a 1/8" hex broach. Turn and thread some medium carbon stock to 5/16x32. Center drill 1/8", broach and then cone one end and cut off. Harden in inert atmosphere or use anti-scale compound and normal oil hardening methods.

I might have some at work, I'll send you a IM tonight when I get home

You could take the dremel route:

Get a regular screw in 5/16"x 32 and cut it to lenght with a dremel cut off wheel. Use the wheel to cut a slot in the end of the screw, test fit with an appropriate screwdriver, adjust slot as needed.

Harden if you wish, or if it is used in a low stress situation, use as is.
