Seeking Advise on Stainless supplier for Imperial 316 Pan Head Posi machine screws

Recommended Posts

We're not familiar with the New Zealand suppliers. And We just heard from Cater Marine in Opua that they could not locate some types of Imperial Machine screws that we need a few hundred of...

(In particular; 316 Stainless Pan Head Posi (Phillips) 1/4" X 2" NC  Machine Screws... as well as a few others.)


Do you have suggestions for a fastener company that carries a broad range of Imperial 316 Stainless

anzor would be the go-to followed by wakefields...



Anzor does not have them, I've also tried CMI Fasteners, SteelMasters, FastTrade,  no luck.  Starting to think they are not available in NZ.

Also Fortress Fasteners in Rosebank Rd, Avondale (very close to Anzor store).


They have a pretty good website

Nope... Fortress says they can't even source them.

I also checked RS Components.  Not a stocked item.  Might be a private import item for you...

Advark, Thanks for doing that;

I just checked in Australia  StainlessFastener.com.au ... The first hit on Google  with a Pan Head Phillips 1/4" x 2" NC in 316 Stainless  (posi is not made anymore according to this Company) $0.58 each  (BTW Cater Marine had slotted head at $4.00/each)

In case it's of any use to someone searching for Imperial 316 Stainless,...

The best source I found was Ausstain https://www.austain.com.au/  Family owned since 1977, they have good contacts and do not source from China (mostly from known sources with a good history in Taiwan) The 1-1/4 x 2" were $27 AUS$ per hundred. I think they supply other suppliers. Friendly and knowledgeable

And Cater's inital price estimate came way down on these for the slot-head style. Cater are great folks.
