Title: Stainless Steel Allen Head Screws For The Ascot.
Post by: J6G1Z on November 01, 2013, 11:56:31 am
Thanks to Bill from the FT500 Ascot Owners Group, I now know of a source for stainless steel Allen head screws for the Ascot. Check out:

Finally I can get rid of those pesky Phillips head screws that strip out the heads so easily. Don't forget to use some Anti-Sieze on the new screws & be careful not to over-tighten them. It is easy to pull the threads out of the aluminum with the positive engagement of the Allen head & driver. Snug plus an eighth to a quarter turn is sufficient.

Good luck
