Where to get Servo Screws
« on: January 22, 2010, 09:42:33 AM »
Where can a get screws that will fit into the tiny holes on the servo arms, I cant find them anywhere. Hobby shop, home depot, lowes, or anywhere I have looked online.

I always just drill the holes wider to 0.116" to fit 4-40 screws. Very easy to do, I literally hold the horn down with my hand under the drill press.

I do the same thing. you dont need a drill press you can do it by hand. i origionally did but moved onto a drill press. i also found the servo mounting screws are good forsome things. i also like the Hex head srews whish i use for mounting onto and with my servo horns.
