Well there you go and Bob's your uncle.
Come to think of it I might have a couple of coated ones on one of my snelves.
Wonder if they are long enough...

Now....can I buy just 5?

And for the screws

I'm pretty sure our local Ace Hardware has them too. Some are better than others, but Ace is usually worth a try.

I was at home depot and they had them, but in the specialty screw area, not the boxes of screws.

High Strength Bolt in Kent blows the doors off of any Tacoma Screw any day, both in price and selection. I will never even bother with Tacoma Screw again!

I'm still waiting for the comment on how hard it is to find a good long screw anymore.

What? :jester:

If you are still looking, try McFeelys www.mcfeelys.com (https://www.mcfeelys.com)

They'll have stainless (both 305 and 316) up to about 18" long, they sell mostly square head and star head.

Worst case, if you only need a handful, my local supply probably has them, 5" stainless will be phillips head though. I pretty much only use stainless anymore.

PM me your address.

I think that you will find it worth your time to stop in on Monday- that place has everything in the way of fasteners!

Planning on it Bill...
Just saw something that might be a problem though, for my application it needs to be threaded all the way (the 10X24)

Billm

Sounds to me like you need a length of allthread with a nut on the end-

That's work, does all thread come that thin?

Billm

10-24? I have seen it but not in stainless lately- ask them at HSB

Bill, stopped by there and ended up with all thread and acorn nuts
A little loc Tight and all should be fine.
The manual for the parts placement for the vent disappeared in the remodel but luckily the stove man. still had a copy.
Turns out for some reason the 5" screws don't need to be that long and Tacoma has what I need now.
So ,tomorrow should be back in business

It still is a good place!
Glad that you got it figured out-

so you got away with the short 5" screws as opposed to the long 5" screws - sweet! :jester:

That's the way not-my-governor works taxes around these parts. Whilst a 5" screw would be bad, they promote it as a "short" 5" screw.

As I said the ,Turns out the 5" long screws don't need to be that length and shorter ones will work

Glad it's working out. Being in the trades myself I know too well how there is always something out there waiting to trip things up.
