Default M4 screws

Anyone know where I can find M4 diameter screws? That's the only size that will fit in my Black Ice rad, and I need to find some more so I can go push/pull.

The 4 stands for 4mm apparently.

Yea it stands for 4mm, they didn't carry them at Rona or Home Depot so I had to go to a store that specalized in fasteners. The one I went to was called Fasten-all. If you look in the yellowpages under screws or fasteners I'm sure you'll be able to find a store that carries them.

Just google'd Fastenal, there's a store 5 minutes from my work. I'll check it out tomorrow.

Thanks.

FYI, Fastenal has these M4 screws to fit Black Ice rads. My local store has to bring them in from their distribution, and I have to buy a minimum of $10 worth, and I have to wait until Friday. Still cheaper than buying a new rad.

You know Sugar, sorry for being late, I should have mentioned earlier.

Well, I have the same rad as you do, and I use regular 8-32 1 1/4" screws really, I find the 8s to be more tightening and secure than the 6s. I have 2 GT Stealth 240 rads and both are using 8-32s.

Thanks for the info, guys!

I need a few of these to roof-mount my projector. Turns out there are two Fastenals in Saskatoon and I'm heading there tomorrow. *Fingers crossed that they'll have them in stock*

I buy M4 screws for my Black Ice from Canadian Tire if a Fasenal is not convenient.

Most Partsources too will have an isle for these. I have all kinds of M4's at my Part Time gig. As well, Bolts Plus stores if they exist out that way should have it.
