Thanks to Madts and Loren.

Jim and Gene I’m talking about the stainless steel ones. I know from experience that they can still rust some eventually, but I suppose, like you say Jim, that the rough surface where it’s cut will just rust faster than the rest it if it isn’t protected with some surface coating.

This came up because my son is revamping a unique bike he got some years ago which was a prototype with a special aluminum frame. It is pretty cool. He is mounting even higher quality components on it and also hydraulic brakes, and the assembly for that is where the screw will be used. Unlike myself he is extremely particular with even the smallest details of what he is doing. I admire that, but I get a lot of questions, some of which I can’t answer, like this one. So I appreciate the help.
