Not available anywhere? Heh! Heh! Heh!
Got lost on your way to Rig-Talk? Idiot.

The Rockman OEM rack tray screws are not standard 100 degree cut screws. Rockman OEM screws were cut to a concave shoulder surface. I'm not saying a 100 degree cut screw won't sit flush... it probably will. When I have some time, I will post a side profile of a true Rockman OEM rack screw vs non-proprietary.

I don't think Sunburst was being disrespectful towards you. He knows I'm part of this thread. I recently bought a bag of 10,000 rack tray screws (the 100 degree taper ones that work great) on eBay and sent him a bunch. I think it was just an inside joke directed towards me.

I don't doubt you regarding the OEM screws but the 100 degree taper screw works just as well, sits flush, and looks the same when installed.

1. Defending idiocy is idiotic.
2. Why would you buy 10k tray screws? Just curious...

I got them for $60 shipped when every other company wanted several hundred dollars for a lot less quantity. Plus, I knew other Rockman enthusiasts might needs some and I don't mind sharing, especially when I have so many and only paid $0.006 each.

I figured I could help out my fellow Rockman brothers, instead of bashing them on a forum. :-)

Thanks for that. My preference is to keep it fun. That's why we mess with these Rockman things anyway. Peace, out.

I'm the same way... but, I have a low tolerance for idiocy. ;-)
