I don’t know if you remember me but I was supposed to have stopped doing woodwork. Of my equipment, I was able to sell only the Jet dust filter. They say that old woodworkers don’t die, they just re-saw. I have no idea if I made this up or it’s somebody else’s idea, but that’s what happened. So I can use my tools to build three projects and, then, sell all the machines.
So I’m building an entertainment center I found on FF. This piece of furniture uses 6 casters and each caster needs 4 machine screws 1/4-20 X 1-1/4. I purchased all the screws at HP. Zinc screws. Of course, as soon as I finished putting in the screws, the look was totally ugly. Specially in the center of the case where you could always see see those 8 ugly screws in the center.

So I’m in search for nice screws, perhaps bolts, carriage bolts, dark brown of the size above to attache the casters to the case.

Sorry for making a short story long and thank you for reading.

I’d appreciate any help on suggestions to find 24 screws and hardware to install those casters.

Thank you.
