  • Machine Screws
  • Just built a custom wall cabinet. Hinge screws show on the front and wife does not like the 10-24 Truss Heads showing.

    I "think" I've seen colored, decorative headed, machine screws but have not been able to find a source.

    Can anyone direct me?

  • I stick them in cardboard and spray paint them what ever color I need.

  • Thanks Dan,

    Hoping to find something with a head like a Rosette or something else "fancy". If it did not have a screwdriver slot or other, that would be fine. 1" gives me enough to hold it on the other side to tighten once. That's all I'm concerned about.

    May be what I end up using. Another fellow had pointed them out to me and I posted a message/question on their website yesterday to see if they are available in a 10.

    Holes are already drilled but 8's may have to work! Perhaps use an inverted rivet as shim.

  • I just plugged in truss head screws and the links show LOWES and HOME DEPOT at the top of the list.

  • Thanks Tim,

    I have nice shiny Truss Heads installed. Those are what the wife does not like.

    I only need a dozen so that will not help me. If I needed a thousand I could get someone to make them special order!
