I added some posts to the "COX Screw Table" thread a few days ago , complaining the 5-40x1 socket-head screws that would serve as excellent replacements for the normal 049 COX propeller screws with aluminum spinners are un-obtanium in my metric part of the world.

Doug aka crankbndr was kind enough and mailed me instantly some 26 pcs of the screws from his stock, that I cannot sufficiently express my gratitude for!!!

The socket-head screw not only offers a more lasting head with its 6-sided internal wrench pit, but thanks to its un-threaded neck, also positions the aluminum spinner nicely for an ultimate prop and spinner balance.

Here are the screws the postman just delivered, with one already added to my home assembled TeeDee051...

Thank you Doug, and once in your neighborhood (beware that I often travel in Florida!!!) I will somehow return this kind favor of yours!

It was easy using a letter size envelope, no customs and arrived fast! They are kinda Chinesum but work ok.

I think Chinesium may be a good thing in this application. The metal is softer and provides a better grip in the threads of the crankshaft. The black oxide bolts with the unthreaded shoulder are the ones I use on most of my planes, but even here in Inch World it was hard to find them without mail ordering. It's also good that they reach deeply into the crank. For some dumb reason, the OEM screws were so short they could cause the crank to bust off right behind the splines. CrankBusters, Lol

Thanks, Crank, for helping out our metric neighbor.
Rusty

I don't see an issue with you dropping the odd letter here and there.  I mean, just look at the precedents.  Aluminium, colour, the list goes on.

I live in a small, run down, lower middle class house in Homestead. My health lately has slowed my maintenance, I'm behind in everything but your are welcome to say high any time.
I went to Key Largo today to get my auto tags, it is 100 times easier than my county. Long lines up here and English is a second language.I worked in the Keys for 10 years and there is a thing called the Keys Disease, nobody gets in a hurry, is friendly and easy going. Its a beautiful thing. So while Im there I get some fresh fish and stone crabs and leaving a large bolt from someones boat trailer found my right front tire. POW, OCRAP but with my tags, fish and crabs it was still good.

Bad luck with that large bolt, Doug, but heads up, I love Florida and the Keys and we try to drive there whenever in the US, a couple of pics from the easy going life - sorta Keys Disease -  and lush vegetation we particularly loved with my wife a few years ago in Miami and Key West (Hemingway's house with the 6-finger paw cats)!!

Exactly Eric...the Corona bottles float on a cocktail and this blend throws you right into the corner of the dive once you finish it. Shocked

Great lookin' couple, Andras. I'm glad to see y'all are laid back and chillin' beach bums... one of my favorite forms of relaxation.
