Question Robertson Screws

Just bought an sv 264 and need an assortment of extra screws. Looks like most applications require a #2 or #3 head. Camping World doesn't carry them. I've checked at the local Ace hardware and they didn't have a clue even what it was.

Recently, had to special order a set of #0 to #4 drivers on line, since Lowes or Home Depot didn't have any.

Any ideas on a good source for the screws?

Well I am heading out camping in a few hours so I may not get your reply. Try searching for a screw/bolt supplier in your area. In my area we have Ababa bolt. Look for fastener specialists.Maybe you have a Fastenal nearby? Good luck!

Thanks Josh, I called and they don't stock them, but can get them in a couple of days. I'm new at this, but it's surprising that the RV stores don't seem to stock them. I guess they don't want us to work on it ourselves.

Robertson screws have been in Canada ever since I can remember. 50 plus years. Never understood why they were never south of the border.

From the Robertson Inc' site:

Quote:
In 1908, P. L. Robertson began to manufacture a square recess impression in the head of a screw in Milton, Ontario, Canada. At that time, it was a revolutionary change in the fastener industry. The first patent was issued in 1909 and the last patent expired 55 years later in 1964. For his invention, P.L. Robertson screws and screwdrivers carry his name to this day.
