    Default Source for M7 screws in stainless steel?

    anyone know of a source for M7-1.00 screws
    Like this but any form of stainless steel:
    McMaster-Carr
    It's for a shift shaft pinch bolt and I want to turn the end that sticks out to M6-1.00 to install a quickshifter sensor that has a 6mm hole size
    Thanks

    Buy the right length of these: 2Pcs M7 Allen Screw Stainless Steel Hex Socket Cap Knurled Head Bolts 10mm-50mm | eBay

    Either use as-is, or get a longer one, cut for thread lenght plus a bit for a machined hex plate, weld plate to thread. I'd just go with the socket cap...

    The correct ISO description for a STANDARD M7 screw 10mm long is: M7x10 (or x16, x20, x30 etc)
    The correct ISO description for a FINE M7 screw 10mm long is: M7x0.75x10
    M7 is not a common size but used as a special size by some manufacturers. M6 and M8 are.

    Thanks to ANSI for screwing things up for the US.

    My local really useful tool and fixings shop in the UK where we're metric doesn't carry ANYTHING M7, it's a Very Special size with prices to match...

    Drill 6.8 mm and tap M8, or buy the helicoil gubbins for M6, otherwise you / the next guy is going to be cursing when the Very Special Size Bolt disappears never to be seen again in a clean, swept, empty workshop...

    I use 7mm often and stainless is not common (Italian motorcycles). And if you can find it, expensive. Ebay is usually the only place to find stainless in 7mm. I don't know why but it seems to be a more common size on ebay in titanium and that is what I get.

    There are times when ebay does not have what I need and have to make them.
