Default Help! I need an Alcan spring center pin... tonight!!

Title kind of says it all, does anyone have one? Apparantly they have a different head diameter than the common ones, at least according to Denver Spring.

PM me, or call me at three ohhh three, seven oh nine, seven oh, seven four.

Thanks!!

Mark

Thanks Ige. It turns out that Alcan uses nothing more than metric socket head bolts available at A&A Trading Post. Same markings, same thread, same everything. The nuts are slightly smaller on Alcan's, but that won't affect my application, and I've still got the old one, anyway.

Ah, I learned that one back when I could barely navigate a Macintosh.. and never thought I would fill a 10 Meg external hard drive, and 512KB of memory seemed limitless.

And no, I did not ride a brontosaurus to work...

That's only because brontosaurus didn't exist yet and it's sorta hard to fit reigns on the only other existing organism back then, a single-cell protozoa. :-)
