Thanks for the suggestions to ask for hardened screws. I will see if they are available. I just hope that someone has screws like these. They are a bit unusual.

I cannot use Allen head cap screws. The screws go into a bar that presses against the blades to clamp them in place. The whole assembly fits into a slot in the cutter head. You then actually back the screws out so that the top of their heads presses against the side of the slot. The top of the head is not accessible. You have to work from the side and you need a really thin wrench. That is one reason the original stamped wrench failed. It was only about 3/32 thick.
