Re: Coupler Mounting Screws
I’ve not bought new Kadees in some time, but quite a while ago, I bought some brass 2-56 screws from McMaster-Carr that have a very flat head, < 1/16” thick. They are slotted head, unfortunately, but I don’t think this thin a head COULD be done in a cross-point version.
They were not expensive at all, and M-C service meant that I had them in my hand second day later.

In the distant past, I tried Kadee’s 2-56 Delrin screws to mount couplers. Many of the heads snapped at off in normal use and I quit using them. Slot or Phillips head - same results
The 2-56 screws Kadee is now supplying with #178 (and other?) couplers have a slightly wider and flatter appearing head. Have any of you tried them? If so, how have they worked out?
