Some days, the supply of available curse words is insufficient to meet my demands.
.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
With one of the screws most hardware places will have a board/chain that has different thread sizes both on the bolt/nut configuration. Try screwing it into what looks like the right size and read the size and thread count. Something like these I bought those as I have run into that way to often and the trips to the hardware store always seem to cost more if you know what I mean. Can't seem to just buy 1 or 2 screws/bolts, etc...........But check both metric and imperial as a few are very close to the same...at least the first few threads.
