Hey guys, I'm starting to freshen up my wayne 50, not doing a restoration but leaving it the way I found it without to much touch up (I hope).

I have searched and searched to try and find machine screws that hold the glass frame together, no luck! They are machine screws 1/4 X 1/4 with #32 threads. I realize that these were probably specialty bolts, but if I can find some in brass I think I modify them to appear as the originals.

If someone can point me in the right direction to get this (length not critical) I would really appreciate it, thanks. Les

Try McMaster Carr on the internet and search for brass screws.
I have had good luck there...

My eye sees a 1/4 20 thread?? Just wondering???

Les, are they 1/4"x32 bolt/thread size, 1/4" long or is the actual screw size 10x32 and they are 1/4" long with a 1/4" wide head?

Hmmm, never seen that thread size on a 1/4" screw. Wonder if you could tap the holes out to the more common 1/4 x 28 thread and then you could use a more common brass screw and machine the head flat. Just thinkin.... I've done that on the face plate screws that are that super fine thread and it worked fine....GB

Thanks GB and Dennis, I had thought about retapping as a last resort. Good news I'm far away right now from needing them. Thank you guys for your input, I really appreciate it. So let the games begin.

I got mine from Ron Scobie. I had to cut them down. The rest of the cabinet used them uncut.

Those aren't the same as Wayne 60 bolts? Look similar.

No, these are only a 1/4" long and have a very thin flat slot head and have fine threads not coarse. Wish they were.

Those almost look like Holley carburetor fuel bowl plugs. Little screws in the side of the fuel bowl to check the float/fuel level.

Dang, if they're 1/4" in diameter they could be a winner. Thanks PLUM 72! I'll check into it, I have some old holleys to check it out.

How many do you need? I may have some extra used ones.


I offer quart can re-lidding, can rolling, lid stamping, and dent removal.
