Default Metric Screw Sets

Anyone know where to get a good deal on metric screw sets? Just trying to replenish my spares, need flathead countersunk, machine, and buttonhead in various sizes.

Thinking about picking up the Trakpower sets, but figured I would ask first, as I am sure someone has a better deal out there. I'd like to get screws that dont easily strip out either.

You need to be carefull with stainless steel screws.

The strength of the best available stainless steel screw (marked A2-70, or A4-70),is below the range of a 8.8 steel one.

And you will find higher grade steel screws like 10.9, or 12.9 type also in a car, where the load is aspected to be high.

As most of the stainless steel screws sold are not further specified I would not go that way.

Another point to mention ist corrosion, using stainless steel screws in combination with aluminum.

+1 I won't use stainless screws.

Screw kits are a waste. I never use all of the screws. Just get what you need.

Derrick,

I buy most of my hardware from http://www.tonysscrews.com/ and I only buy what I need not a "set". It comes out better in that you get more of the screws you use at less cost. Also the quality is excellent.

That's interesting
I live near the coast. and don't care for the orange rusty steel screws

I'm sure the Yeah Racing screws are more durable than ti or aluminum screws
No issues in the last few years, and the price is less than buying individual pieces
Not saying they are strong as "good" steel screws

AW grease on the threads keeps everything like new too

I've built 4 cars on this set so far
