    Blacksmith and Bolt has #18 x 2 1/2 black oxide finish. Close enough?

    We often find odd screws for our action builds at https://www.thescrewspecialists.com/

    They are actually the supplier for Schaff for a lot of piano screws.

    I have what might be #18  (the gauge I have only goes up to #14)  -- the shank (unthreaded part) is 1/4" diameter.  However for lengths I have 2,  2 1/4,  2 1/2,  and 3, but can't seem to find a 2 3/4".  I'll look some more but it's doubtful one will show up.

    Shank size on #18 is .294" plus or minus a couple .001".

    Dean and Wesley,
    Mind if I quote you guys? It'll make a good Journal tip.
    Anyone else have good sources for older screws and bolts?
    thanks!
