Some measurement help

Iím working on a project. It involves very small spikes and screws.




I canít have the head on the screw... so. The way I see it is I have two options.

Spend a very tedious and potentially unsuccessful few hours cutting the heads off of each of these.

Or

I can figure out the measurements and attempt to find threaded rods in the same size.

Questions:

1) I believe the tag is giving me the information that I seek, however, Iíve always kind of sucked at this kind of thing. Can someone tell me in laymenís terms what size screw it is?

2) Does anyone know where I could find a threaded rod in the desired size?

If my google-fu is right, looks like it should be a #4-40 x 1/4" flat head screw. Googling 4-40 all thread provides a bunch of purchase options: https://www.google.com/search?q=4-40...obile&ie=UTF-8

Just buy set screws. No head, hex socket on one end.

These threads look 6-32 to me......

Go to a hardware store and try the screw in their thread testers. After you find the thread size get some set screws.

I agree with Shootist, it looks like a 6-32 to me, but maybe your hands are smaller than mine and I'm correlating the image inaccurately. But paintzapper's right, just check the threads at a Home Depot. I suggest buying the set screws in bulk from boltdepot.com; much cheaper than acquiring them locally and they ship super fast. I get all my hardware from them.
