I'm a photo hobbyist, and I'm customizing a couple of tripod heads. I need the thread on the screws to extend only so far, not all the way, so I will thread them myself. But I haven't found a source. Where do I get them? Thanks!
The only source that I know of would be a fastener manufacturer, if screws of suitable length were to be pulled off of the line after heading but before threading you would have what you require. I suspect that there would be a minimum order limit.
OK, I've found long hex head screws at Tractor Supply. I'll shorten and thread them, and they'll be fine, but just not to the eye ! It's not a 'high stress' usage (the item is pot metal), so I can grind the hex head shallower and bevel along each section a bit, so it won't bother the hand in handling. Thanks Canus, and All !
