I need to find some of the longer screws for attaching the actuator to the three way valve body *Pentair valves.
Have plenty of the shorter screws but none of the longer ones...

Have not tried regular sheet metal screws or machine screws.

The screws, set of 4 is being sold for $28 on Amazon and around the same from pool supply stores. My local warehouse has to order them from Pentair and will
take a couple of weeks. Even then they want $11 for a set of 4 screws.

I believe the spec is 1/4 x 14 / 1.5 inches long stainless steel | Thread forming screws for plastic.

Try ACE Hardware. My local ACE carries every nut, screw & bolt imaginable in both English and metric formats. The longer screws are the exact same diameter and thread pitch as the shorter screws.
