I am after any help on getting longer slider screws to replace the M8 x 25 countersunk 316 stainless screws for my axis plate mount as I am only getting 2 to 3 full turns because of the depth of the boxes thanks

I'd keep foiling, but carry an Allen key and nip them up periodically probably no dramas til the bolts arrive. Get extra because the flog out over the course of a few months, and the one time you really need to back one off........you can't.

You can also just use a std bolt for now just take it out after every session until the right ones arrive

I used these for over a year with no issues. Available in the Bunnos stainless fixings isle for under $10 for a pack of 8.
There's a few different length options in 25,35 and 50. I've cut a few longer lengths down to size using a hack saw easily.

Yep this it what i do. Changed all the slingshot bolts for these. Now i use cordless drill. two sized drive bits. So much better/faster assembly than allen key heads that strip easily

This explains why 316 stainless steel is the choice for salt water




THE PROS AND CONS OF 304 VS 316 STAINLESS STEELPosted July 28, 2017 by Arthur Harris & filed under Company News.
Did you know that 304 and 316 are the most popular and widely used types of stainless steel? From the naked eye, it can be extremely difficult to tell the difference between grades of stainless steel. 304 and 316, in particular, look almost identical and the differences between the two are easy to miss. So what are the differences between 304 vs 316 stainless steel? Below we answer that question and discuss different applications where the grades are used.DIFFERENCES BETWEEN 304 VS 316The most basic difference between the grades of steel is the presence of molybdenum in stainless 316. Molybdenum is a chemical element used for the strengthening and hardening of steel. Its main function in stainless 316 is to help fight off corrosion from chlorides. Stainless 316 contains more nickel than stainless 304, while 304 contains more chromium than 316. Stainless 304 usually consists of 18% chromium and 8% nickel. Stainless 316 is made up of 16% chromium, 10% nickel and 2% molybdenum.The two steel grades are comparable in appearance, chemical makeup and characteristics. Both steels are durable and provide excellent resistance to corrosion and rust. 304 stainless steel is the most versatile and widely used austenitic stainless steel in the world, due to its corrosion resistance. 304 stainless is also cheaper in cost compared to 316, another reason for its popularity and widespread use.Stainless 316 is more expensive because it provides a higher corrosion resistance, especially against chlorides and chlorinated solutions. This makes stainless 316 more desirable in applications where salt exposure is an issue. If you have an application with powerful corrosives or chlorides, the extra cost of stainless 316 is highly recommended. In such applications, 316 stainless will last longer than 304, providing you with extra years of life and usage. If your application uses milder acids or does not contain salt exposure, stainless 304 is perfect. Below we list some common applications for both grades of steel.Applications for 304 Stainless SteelAuto moldings and trimWheel coversStorage tanksKitchen equipment/appliancesElectrical enclosuresApplications for 316 Stainless SteelStainless steel floatsMarine partsOutdoor electrical enclosuresChemical EquipmentPharmaceutical equipment
To sum it up, 316 steel is worth the expense if you need superior corrosion resistance and your application contains water. If not, 304 steel will serve your needs
