nylon hardware

    This has to do more with fabbing than repair.
    I want to find some #6 nylon machine screws and nuts. This would make
    my life much easier when screwing down TO-220 transistors. I can't use
    clips on the stuff I make because the transistors attach to the
    enclosure, not individual heatsinks. I have my own insulating sheet
    material and I don't want to buy a mounting hardware kit for each
    transistor, it would cost more than the transistors. I need
    nonconductive fasteners.

    Far too often you find new text posted through News.Google with *no*
    accompanying quoted material. But this is the first I've seen via that
    route with only quoted material -- and *no* new text. :)

    I think Digi-Key and Mouser both carry these.

    You're right! Digi-Key has nylon screws... about $10 per 100 screws in
    the size I seek, and I was getting ready to order some stuff from them
    anyway.

    McMaster Carr charges several dollars PER SCREW (PTFE -- no mention of
    nylon).

    Look harder!
    McMaster-Carr is about half that.
    Example:
    p/n 94690A110 4-40 x 1/2" Nylon binding head $4.80/100
    p/n 94690A146 6-32 x 3/8" Nylon binding head $4.93/100
    p/n 94812A112 4-40 Nylon nuts $5.13/100
    Search for 'plastic screws' and 'nylon nuts'
    What more do you want?
