  • Source for brass set screws in Canada

    Hi Guys;
    Looking for a source for brass set screws in Canada.
    6-32, 8-32- 10-32.
    I've tried Mcmaster-Carr and they won't ship to me, even if I have it shipped to my Customs Broker in Blaine, WA. I just don't understand that.
    I tried BC fasteners and they are 5X the Mcmaster-Carr price.

    Thanks.

    Fastenal has them. They have Canadian branches. They are in Kelowna and Kamloops.

      If you don't have any luck finding them locally, I've had good results with cutting a screwdriver slot in a short section of bolt or threaded rod.

          If You can use steel screws just part off a tiny plug of brass or plastic if the screw rest on threads like the pre load nuts on a mill spindle. I'm guessing you dont want to bung a shaft or a threaded set collar.

            Thanks for the replies.
            Fastenal is also 5X the McMaster-Carr price. I expected higher in Canada but not 5X !
            Gotta be brass. I'm converting Holley carbs to replaceable air bleeds by drilling them lengthwise.
            Adgo Racing probably knows what I'm doing.
            6-32 x 3/16
            8-32 x 3/16
            10-32 x 1/4
            100 each

              Funny you should say that...

              Let me see what I can do.

              Socket head or slotted?

                  cuslog - if ADGO Racing can't help you, let me know. I'll order whatever you want and ship them your way. They'd probably go in an envelope for practically nothing.

                    Give the order desk a call. I am sure they are showing the single piece price. I am sure the box (100) price is a lot lower. List price is just the start of negotiations. Tell them they are for carbs on engine driven wheelchairs for local handicapped kids.

                    At least they will sell you the parts.

                    [rant-on] I wonder why McCarr doesn't want to sell to Canadians. This great made in the USA stuff is only available to Americans. It seems silly that all their American (buy USA) customers would DEMAND that they would export to Canada. Even Princess Auto (similar to HF) has now started to carry USA brands to support customers who want to buy something from this continent and the jobs it creates.[rant-off]

                          I'll follow up on these tomorrow.
                          I do understand why some companies don't want to ship outside their own country. There is a certain amount of paperwork that has to be filled out. But what I really don't get is that I gave them my name C/O my customs broker in Blaine WA, the broker does the paperwork (for a fee) and forwards them on to me (for another fee).

                            Whatever happened to free trade? I though NAFTA was supposed to get rid of all this stupid crap between the friendly countries on this continent-

                              Although NAFTA eliminated most of the tariffs, Unfortunately you still have to go through the process of submitting paper work (B3) & Certificate of Origin in order to clear customs.
                              You can do it yourself as all the forms and tariff listing are on the web, but it is quite a process.
