I need a couple flat head Phillips metric screws: M4-70 x 8 and M4-70 x 10
I don't need a large quantity, just a couple of each. It would be a bonus if they were black, but metal/silver will do.
I tried at my CT and local hardware stores and Home Depot. I found some oval head screws, but I need flat head.

Does anyone know where I can find these screws?

Home hardware stores usually have an assortment of metric and standard machine screws in plastic or metal shelf box assortments.
The other option is to purchase oversized standards and use your metric tap and die (Home Depot) set to make them.

Ah - you tried those already. Any chance you could convert the domed ones to flat head?

Thanks, Daryl, this is what I will have to do if I can't find any flat head metric machine screws. There's a lot of unified screw thread sizes, but when it comes to metric the selection is much smaller.

If you search the Yellow Pages for business's selling fasteners you may find a local company selling a selection of metric screws however you may have to buy an entire box of screws.

I own an old Jeep that has a number of those damn Torx fasteners. I bought a box of standard fasteners to replace them.
The darn Jeep has a mix on metric and SAE fasteners so I have to keep a variety of tools close at hand.

If you live close to a reasonably large city, you should be able to find a specialty fastener shop.

I live in London, Ontario (pop. 375,000 or so?), and we have a couple.

The selection far exceeds what you'll find in regular hardware stores. You can also get grade 8 and other specialty items.

Fastenel if you live by a Metropolitan area. By the box or individually.

Thanks, gentlemen. I've been looking and I think there is a specialty fastener shop or two here.

I'll check the Home Hardware downtown tomorrow for you. It's been there since the very early 1900's and they do have a LOT of tools, parts, etc, "things" other stores do not stock.

Thanks. I had forgotten about them. I got some 6mm threaded rod from them in the past. They might have metric machine screws.
