Solid 651 Silicon Bronze Oval Head Machine Screws with a Slotted Drive
Our Silicon Bronze Machine Screws, often referred to as Machine Bolts, are the highest quality available, made of a solid 651 Silicon Bronze Alloy, and manufactured to meet ASME B18.6.3 standards. These fasteners are often used as bolts with nuts on the end or can be driven in to tapped holes. All of the Machine Screws we carry come with a slotted drive. These oval headed machine bolts have a countersunk head, with a standard 82 degree angle on the countersink.
4" lengths and less are fully threaded with rolled threads, while lengths over 4" are partially threaded with full body shanks and cut threads.
Silicon Bronze Strut Bolts
Also known as strut bolts, silicon bronze machine screws with an oval head are often used to attach a vessel's strut or other hardware to the hull below the waterline.
We carry one of the largest selections of solid bronze machine screws in the USA. Use them in your boat building application to attach bronze hardware, in your electrical application since bronze is such a good conductor, or in any application where the highly anti-corrosive nature combined with the beauty of bronze is fitting.
We do things a bit differently here at Fair Wind Fasteners. Rather than force you to purchase an entire box of fasteners you can put the exact quantity you need in the quantity box above and we'll box and send the perfect amount. Quantity discounts will be automatically applied.
I am extremely pleased with the specialty screws I was able to order through Fair Wind Fasteners. I'm glad outfits like this are still around to fill the gaps left by hardware stores and even marine suppliers.
Oval Head Silicon Bronze Machine Screws / Bolts
I fastened decking panels to the cockpit floor on a vintage wooden runabout, using threaded inserts let into the floor timbers underneath. The oval heads mated perfectly with same-size finish washers, resulting in a super clean, low profile look, with no rough edges on the deck.
Always a great experience with Fair Winds
Great company. Fast, quality, and great communication.
