View Full Version : Torx screwed

11/28/2007, 12:48 PM
Does anyone know of a good source (inexpensive) for Torx screws. I need about a half dozen 5/16-18 pan head torx screws (about 1/2 inch long). Some are missing from my aftermarket spare rim. I've checked locally and nobody seems to carry them. I checked on line & the best price I can find is about $6 each.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I knew Sears sells tools but I didn't know they sold screws. Prolly several years since I've even been in Sears. Times change.

That's the site that has them for $6 ea. They seem like a good source but I was hoping to pay less. I'll prolly have to bite the bullet though since even the rim mfr doesn't supply replacements, Fastenall laughed at me, ACE wouldn't let me in the door, PepBoys & me had a falling out last year (they're blacklisted in my book), Home Despot has everything but, Lowes never heard of Torx ...

You get the picture - I'm tired of hunting.

Here's another source: www.tastynuts.com

Probably more expensive, but fun to browse.

Yeah, I'd like to see what network services has to say when that URL shows up on my system.
