ISO source of M6 Torx screws

Post by ninjaarmadillo »

Is there a local source for M6 Torx (star head) screws?
Or does anyone know of a good online source?

Let me know if you find something, I'd split shipping with you if online is the only option.

Hillside and Rock Bay (in Victoria): FastenerForce One Resources
I got some SS torx there and they seem to have a big inventory. No titanium though, but sounds like SS is good enough.

Contact email and location address on that page.

Weird, I went there and they said they don't carry any Torx.

Same topic but different question I'm hoping someone can help answer.

IS the hardware to attach the foil to board an M6 T-nut and machine screw? Is that something that fastener force would carry or is it winging specific? I have a PPC board and Moses foil. Last piece of the puzzle before I can get out and sail.

Cheers!

M6 or M8 depending on foil.

They might have the bolts but definitely won't have the nuts

Ok thanks for the reply. Do you know if there is anywhere that sells them or is that something that I need to get online.

Best chance of success is online - mac Kites or Silent Sports or North Shore Boards - maybe dirty mermaid or zen sports? Maybe Gyro boards in cadboro bay?
