Question Sourse for 3mmx8mm T10 torx bolts

And NO McMaster-Carr does not have them..

Basically I want to replace the Allen reservoir cap bolts with Torx on my HOPE brakes since they are far less prone to strip, but so far finding them has prove to be very challenging..

How close are you finding?

Sometimes with special lengths I end up cutting them down a bit from something like a 3x10 or whatever is closest.

But that is a good idea if I find only longer ones..

Metricmcc.com . Not sure if they have what you need, but worth a look.

I just got a McMaster box today, love those guys I wish they put bags of M&Ms like Max BMW does...

They could not have an easier site to order from you are right about that, plus being in Pittsburgh when I order they are next day to my door.

if you're anywhere near mcmaster-carr , you should really stop in there sometime. a pretty amazing setup they have... and yes, they do have a physical catalog, but i don't know why you'd ever wanna go through it - the website is beautiful, the printed catalog, although nice, is pretty monstrous...

The printed catalog is great to browse through and find stuff you never thought you needed until you saw it.

They let you walk through the McMaster warehouse??? Kinda like a retail section?

Damn, I'd be like a kid in a candy store.
