    Supplier for hard to find machine screw

    So I am looking for a specific machine screw and it has been really hard if not impossible to find. I've been to fastenal twice (of course they ordered hex heads for me first that I had to return). I've contacted mcmaster and grainger, as well as used all the google kung foo I know how to muster. So....anyone have any recommendations for a supplier for a really hard to find machine screw???

    I am looking for 6-40 flathead, torx drive machine screws (3/8"-5/8").

    I would probably buy 100-500 of ea length.

    Have you tried Grainger and the welders supply shops?

    NEW TO SCRAPPING? READ THIS: Build up your horde of magnetic and non-magnetic metals in two piles until you have a better understanding of the business. Magnetic material has low value and is mostly always steel / shred / short iron. Read old threads about non-magnetic metals and ewaste (and how to sort them), but don't forget that they generally have absolutely no tolerance for contamination (screw / iron / foreign material).
