Need a few square head woodscrews


I'm in UK and looking for about 12 off No.6 or No.8 woodscrews 3/4 in or 1in long in a black finish to hold the hinges on an old looking piece of furniture. Can anyone suggest a supplier (or more suitable group in which to ask)?
TIA - Peter

I got some at Lee Valley---www.leevalley.com--they're called pyramid head screws and Rockler carries them too. What I really wanted was black, square- head screws with no slot (which would make them bolts, I guess, but in small sizes)...I wasn't able to find them anywhere. All the escutcheons on my house's interior doors are attached with them, but the house was built in the 1920s.

Someone specializing in house restoration would probably be best chance for more in the future. A lot of that kind of thing is salvaged and resold but it tends to be pricey. A few folks make reproductions as well. Being in the US I don't know where to point you in UK specifically.

Just an off-topic note, (and it would be easier to remember if it was the other way around) but a "bolt" threads into a "nut" and a "screw" threads into a hole (possibly prethreaded) in a part.

hey larry--you're right...but aren't lag screws sometimes called lag bolts, even though they don't thread into nuts?...by the way, you didn't grow up in Bethesda, did you--specifically Bannockburn?

Man, it's great to be told I'm right for a change! (lol) Well, sure they are sometimes, probably most of the time, called lag bolts, most call bolts that have a flat, phillips, or square drive "screws" and anything with a hex, socket, or square head a bolt, and it's kind of a pedantic distiction in my mind.
Didn't grow up in Bethesda BTW, though for a few years in the 70s I lived in Takoma Park and Beltsville. The rest of my residence in Maryland has been in Baltimore.

I think they would be correctly called coach screws, but these usually come with a hex head and start at arund 6mm, which is too big

Try http://www.mcfeelys.com / They're great people with fabulous products.
They might mail out such a small order.
Can't hurt to ask.

Thanks for the kind words, and indeed, we would ship them out - if we stocked them. Alas, we don't, and a quick check of our suppliers offers no help either.
