I know it may be a long shot...
I am looking for a Vendor who makes M4.5 Socket Head Cap Screws. Perhaps some of our eastern hemisphere folks could assist?
M4.5 SHCS are of an OBS standard, but we still have a requirement in design.
Well the ones we buy for our cutters are similar to these ... I wouldn't call it a SHCS though, more of a low profile and I'm not 100% on the pitch. There are other styles as the one we buy is an ISCAR brand, but they're all pretty much the same layout. Either a thin profile head or tapered head.
Torx Plus Clamping Screw for Indexable 02717627 - MSC
Ninja Edit: I looked up the one we order and it is in fact a .75 pitch ... Hope it helps.
It's a long shot. You may have to Google.
Even if they are where you want them, doesn't mean that's where they make them.
One of the first that pops up:
Google is a friend and an enemy.
Scott, Is it a standard .5 or .75 pitch? If it's not either of those it may be manufacturer specific.
It is standard.75 pitch.
Scott, Sorry man ... Exhausted all my leads with no luck. Figured I could find one as it is the same thread our Indexable Mills use but not in the SHCS or hex head, only Torx.
SHCS with TORX would work.
This looks good... Looking into it a little further.
Wish this were 20mm
So its M4.5X.75 SHCS?
I can't find the SHCS, but here is a place that sells the tap....
Metric Tap M4.5X.75
And the Die is also sold there......so conceivably, you could make something that would work.....
Metric Die M4.5X.75
Closing this thread. I appreciate all your help.
What is the material you require for the SHCS's? I know a gentleman who know a lot about fasteners and if anyone would know it would be him. Once you get me the material I'll see what I can do.
18-8 CRES or equiv.
He has been in the business for over 40 years and he said he's never even heard of them. You could try Metric & Multistandard Components Corp. to see if they might have them. Personally I would consider opening up the hole to use a bigger screw if possible.
The hole size can't change.
