If FCS put a steel female insert in the plugs (like Lokbox) I'd maybe think about using them again
EasyTom wrote:Found FCS compatible longer grub screws (after loads of looking!!!) and now I've got the fin I wanted seated nicely! (A standard FCS grub screw was going too far in and not gripping enough.) Anyway, you can buy two slightly longer lengths here:
And these are the ones you want:
Standard FCS: 10-24 1/4" 2.4 5 MF-GS160S
Longer (about 10mm): 3/8" 2.4 5 MF-GS162S
Even longer (about 12mm): 1/2" 2.4 5 MF-GS163S
(Make sure of the 'S' on the end of the item code because they are the 'A2' stainless ones.)
And when I ordered from the site at 4pm they arrived next day! Have fun with your longer FCS Grub Screws everyone...
