Default SCREWS - where to get them?

Dear speaker builders, this may seem as a really silly question, but where on earth do you find SCREWS to mount your drivers? I mean, my local hardware store has plain screws, but most of them are stainless steel and big. Where do you guys get small black screws, say for mounting a small tweeter?

Madisound has a good selection of screws.

I get mine from a specialist fasteners firm, unless you're living in an incredibly small town you should be able to find one.

Auto parts places are a good source.

I get mine from McFeelys.

#6 x 3/4" Black Oxide Truss Head Screws;

#8 x 1" Black Oxide Pan Head Screws;

They're a bit shinier than what Parts-Express and Madisound sell.
They match better with the drivers basket.
