Red face Wanted: a couple of UNF bolts

Hi,

would any of you guys from the US or Canada be willing to mail me (4) UNF (not UNC) 5/16" bolts, length 1-1/2"?

I need those to mount an old American plate transformer. I can get them locally but only by the box, which seems a little silly.

In return I could send some terminal strips (brown resin, ex-USSR stuff).

Anyone closer by who has a box of those is welcome to respond too, of course.

TIA
Kenneth

To clarify, you need 5/16"-24, correct?

Head style? Hex head, socket head cap, etc.?

Material? zinc plated, stainless, black oxide?

Sounds like you are threading these into something, so you don't need nuts.................

Yes, that's right, it has to be 5/16"-24. These are for mounting a sealed transformer which has internally threaded holes, so I don't need any nuts.

The bolts will not be visible so the style and material are not very important, but I most prefer stainless hex socket caps. Partial thread is okay too, full-length thread is not necessary.

Thanks for looking!
Kenneth

I'll check my stash tomorrow. Will get back to you -- if you haven't found a source by then, I'll be glad to send them to you.

Thanks, today I visited some more "well-stocked" hardware shops here, but still no luck.

I can pick some up next week, no problem. I work down the street from an incredibly well-stocked industrial hardware store.

Please PM me if you need me to get these....

I've got 5/16-24 x 1-1/2" in black oxide socket head, full threads. Let me know if you want them. No hurry if you want to see what boywonder comes up with.

Thanks guys, you're both very kind!

Boywonder, since Phil has them on hand already I'll save you the trip to the store. Let me know if you ever need one or two of those terminal strips

Phil, I'll send you my address in PM. Thanks.

Kenneth

UNF Bolts are still available.
They are used for Classic Cars & Motorcyles for instance.
For small quantities of almost anything my preferred source is eBay as you can avoid paying too much for Packing & Postage.

Stainless Steel UNF Allen Bolts 5/16 x 1.1/2" 4 Pack on eBay (end time 20-May-10 13:54:14 BST)

(Just in case you need something like this again)

Xoc1, good to know, thanks. Prices are prohibitive, though.
