Went to Lowe's to get some of the screws I needed to replace in my icd and of course they dont have any. They were'nt out of stock they dont carry a bolt that size. I think we have to have the crapiest lowe's there is around. Sorry guys jus had to vent.

Not just your Lowes, its all of them and the Home Depot. I really wish these large stores didnt put the smaller shops out of business.

Ace is good, you can get most of the standard sizes there, but the off ones, like 6-32* 5/8ths(which is the size for the eye covers) they don't have. overall, the basic stuff, i always get locally, but i personally get my majority of screws from McMaster-Carr. i will be placing an order, probably in 2 weeks. you pay me for the screws, and $2 for shipping and i'll order it. McMaster-Carr is in NJ so its like a day to receive. so if you want to order up, LMK.

Yeah, I've always just gone to places like Fastenall or screw shops. Most metropolitan places have them, just check the phone book. We have to remember, Lowes and Home Depot are home improvement stores, not machinist stores. They just don't have the right clientele to carry machine screws.

My lowes and HD don't have them either. I go to a place called McCabe, but even then, it's not that great for selection.

yea I went into lowes yesterday for some 3/8"-24 socket head cap screws....they don't even carry them. The only ones they had in the thread were hex head.

Mcmaster had them here this morning from ohio lol. Also cheaper, even after shipping.
