Hi all,

 

I'm located in Greece,Europe and there is a real trouble every time I try to find screws and bolts in American standards in my country.

 

This time I'm searching for a specific screw that is 3,5mm in diameter and has 32 teeth in the thread. It's from an old Steadicam arm.

 

Does anyone from the US know of an internet store that sell all kinds of screws and ships internationally?

 

Thanks in advance!

Screw that is 35mm in diameter doesn't have a place in a steadicam arm in my opinion  .....may be 3,5mm?

Hi Haris,

 

We, here in London, have the best old school hardware store on our doorstep dealing in both Imperial and metric. Their website is comprehensive and they ship within Europe, so use them while we're still in it!

Excuse my typo Nikolay...it's 3,5mm in diameter.

 

Chris and Rick thanks a lot...I'll look into both your links.

 

Can someone please tell me how should I look the 32 threads per inch code? Is it the 6-32 or 8-32 or this is totally wrong?

 

And if it's correct what does the 6 and 8 stands for?

 

Thanks,

I think I found it guys...

 

The 6-32 1/2" socket head screw is the one I'm looking for...3,5mm (0.138 decimal inches) diameter, 32 threads per inch and 129mm (1/2") long.

 

The MCMASTER seems to have everything and tomorrow I will try to see if they will ship to me.

 

The CLERKENWELLSCREWS don't seem to have imperial sizes at their web site Rick. If you can find out how to search for imperial please let me know.

 

Thanks a lot,
