View Full Version : [Question(s)] 5-40?

09-17-2008, 08:27 PM
So I bought some servo hubs from ServoCity, and it seems they are tapped for 5-40 threads. Where in heck do I find 5-40 machine screws, especially the flat-headed ones that would be needed for this? Anyone have a source?

Or, since it's aluminum, I could potentially re-tap it for 6-32 which I have in spades. Would that be a better option?

Thanks in advance.

Arg! Of course they have them at ... ServoCity! Hell if I'm going to pay shipping on four screws. Any other thoughts welcome.

Your local ace hardware might have them if not mcmaster.com has them for sure.

Ah, 7 cents apiece. That's more like it. Thanks, Quantum.

Go to your local hobby shop that has RC cars and planes.
