I have been looking for 5x15 .8 Cap Bolts (screws) to drill and safety wire my NSU. Locally I'm getting the run around, either they don't carry such item or I have to order a box of many more than I need! Anyone know of a good source in Canada, perhaps in the Okanagan where I live, or some place in Canada I could on line order an assortment from? Cheers, Mark

Bigger Home Depots tend to have a decent selection in metric.

(I just bought an M8 set screw for the chain roller there)

I have made purchases from Pacific Fasteners and they are great! All their product is stainless and that has the least strength of any steel bolt? Maybe not necessary for my application but I tend to shy away based on some unknown prejudice I have? I have used their allen head set screws where I removed my upper chain roller, just something to plug the hole!

Did you try Lakeside Fasteners, in Kelowna?

No I didn't know of them, but I will try them, and thanks!

Yield strength depends on the type of stainless. 304, 316 etc. You certainly don't want to wholesale replace stock with stainless or bling anodized AL fasteners, but for NSU I'd use SS if that's what I could get.
