Default Oak Park Spacers

I can't seem to find the bolts and screws that came with my Oak Park spacers. Does anyone know the size and details?

Many thanks

I had to use longer ones... std 1/4 x ?? Easy to find... had them on hand... I needed longer ones to get through my top... No problem...

Have Fun,

Just use a regular bolt? Seems like it was something different from a regular bolt.

SB, try contacting OP. They may be able to send or sell you the machine screws.
Otherwise, pick up some 1/4" or 5/16" machine screws so the heads will "sit" properly in the recessed holes in the spacers.

I actually was referring to the nuts. Wing nuts? Hex nuts?

Thanks

Yep, they are wing nuts... But, I'm going to make larger KNOB that can hit the bolt end easier than messing with that small wing nut.

The bolts also must have V heads so they can go into the jigs OK... countersunk.

You will LIKE them!

Have Fun,
Joe
