    5-40?

    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.

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

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