damn, B&H is sold out already? wow...
Ben, can you share the information( thread, size, length) of the screws that you got? That looks like a great idea. Thanks!
OK, I went to McMaster-Carr's site and think I have what we need:
Part # Price QTY Desc
96741A015 $9.19 100 Metric Pan Head Phillips Machine Screw Brass, M2 Size, 8mm Length, .4mm Pitch, packs of 100
90690A030 $4.14 100 Metric Brass Hex Nut M2 Size, .4 mm Pitch, 4 mm Width, 1.6 mm Height, packs of 100
96295A104 $6.86 100 Metric Nylon Cheesehead Slotted Machine Screw Black, M2 Size, 8 mm Length, 0.4 mm Pitch, packs of 100
93369A112 $10.53 100 Metric Black Nylon 6/6 Hex Nut M2 Size, .4mm Pitch, 4mm Width, 1.2mm Height, packs of 100
first set is brass, second nylon... That's for 100 of either option, so enough to do 50 holders. The cheapest option would be the nylon screws with the brass nuts @ $10 total, but personally I'd keep them both the same. Not sure which option I like better, but I'm considering ordering the box of 100 of one then just selling (to cover my cost) the parts to anyone interested? Something like mail me an addressed envelope with $1 in it and I'll send it back with 2?
feel free to click that link then use those part #s. It'll come up. They have technical drawings that helped me figure out I wanted (I think):
