    Hi devils,

    I'm working on my custom balisong but all screws I could find were only "ok".
    I need 4mm length thread screw but normally they sale longer screws.
    The screws need to have bigger head.
    I'm looking for

    Pivot screw head .24 inch(6mm) at the smallest

    Spacer screw head .14 inch (3.5mm) at the smallest.

    I'm wondering if I can find screws which are used by HOM or BRS.
    I have googled and searched on alpha knife supply, USA knife and some more shops. but can't find.

    Please give me advice.

    why not ??
    most of the sizes are memorized,not too difficult , there is a thread stating sizes people have found on their knives.
    either way you can likely get the info ,unless you are using something not normal ,in which case you should be buying the screws where you are buying the pivots.

    Matt,

    Thanks.
    6-32 T10 and
    2-56 T6 should work, but another problem is that thread lengths of those screw I found are too long.
    I'm looking for screws with length of 3mm to 4mm so that I don't have to spend a lot of time for each screws.
    I'd rather spend time for blade or handles.

    It literally takes a few seconds per screw. Unless you're making hundreds of knives I don't really see that taking up too much of your time.

    Yeah, I agree. I thought it would take more.
    I have decided to cut buy myself, rather than wasting time seeking for short screws.
