I have a Craftsman 21830 Jobsite table saw on which the blade adjustments mechanism is held in place with four socket flathead cap screws. Three of the four have the drive socket partially stripped out and I wish to replace them. I ordered what I thought was six screws from Sears Parts Direct for $9.69 (incl shipping & tax). I received one and upon rechecking the listing the six shown is the recommended number!
So I start looking on line for socket flat cap screws M6×1.0×25. I can find them at several places but all are quantity of 50 or 100. What I need are four and I really hate to buy a box of these things and then throw all but four away (actually I wouldn’t, but they would sit in my shop and rust for the next xxxx years).
Can anyone recommend a place where I might buy these screws in a quantity of ‘each’? That really isn’t too much to ask, is it? I’ve checked McMasters, Grainger, MSCDirect, Reid Supply, Fastenal, Small Parts, just to name a few.
Any help would be appreciated. Oh, yeah, Ace Hardware doesn’t list fasteners online and we don’t have one anywhere close.
