Just when you need those Torx button screws so the kids don't take the bathroom doors off in high schools across the good ol' USA.

Some options for black metric sheet metal screws would be nice. That's a niche not covered elsewhere. I'd be interested in some M3x0.5, 10-12 mm length, Torx/Torx-Plus drive, oval or flat head with a black oxide finish.

!!!! There are also one way straight slotted screws that are not easily removed. Slot shoulders to drive in and tapered ramps in the reverse direction.

One of my favorite house warming kits for lawyers etc., contains both sizes of sink traps, hammer, small saw, screwdriver assortment, pipe wrench, crescent wrench and a left handed threaded light bulb! They are made for housing projects so the tenants only steal one bulb from the common areas.

Amazing what you can find these days.

Easy to make, use the gun black chemicals. Then when dry place them on a tray and lightly spray paint black from 360 degrees around. Highs the tray to expose unpainted area and repeat the light spray.

Simon-I’m thinking an OEM such as Tom has better things on which to spend his time?

An OEM should have enough quantity to get a commercial house to do the process for them. The method mentioned is good for several hundred pieces at a time. It is how my supplier does it.

Tom - Fastener Superstore has lots of options, but not at quick glance the exact combination you cite. With a sufficient order and lead time, who knows how far theyíd care to go?
Machine Screws | Metric | Steel / Black Oxide | Fastener SuperStore
I think I used these guys for three pitch sizes of black oxidized button head hex machine screws about 10 or so years back. Their website sucks, but phone & in person service was good back then.
Products | FastenerForce One Resources

The other industrial suppliers we used in volume -Richelieu, and Hafele - have little to offer in this category as well, so save your Google pixels.

Simon - how are the referse threaded bulb sockets identified so a legimate replacement isn’t a risk?

They are not! Not even on the package. They just won't screw into the wrong socket.
