    I wanted to buy a set - or maybe pack of 5.

    Didn't realize these were so hard to find.

    On Amazon someone is selling 1 for $20.



    $5.50 for 1 on eBay - still pricey for what it is.

    Any other ideas on where to get some of these cheap.

    It's a 10/32" x 1/16" set screw

    Try lowes in the specialty screw drawers.

    GRAINGER isn’t cheap, but you have a huge selection + online ordering that goes easily. (Quantity-buy).

    Any of the chain stores. I’d prefer ACE or TRUE VALUE over the warehouse stores.

    Also, electrical supply house (quantity problem again) or FASTENAL for brick & mortar.

    Have to get past that quantity matters not, SHIPPING/HANDLING is the real cost.

    Get your WILSON antenna supply up to speed at BELLS or another house handling the full line of replacement parts. Add in some screws.

    Yeah - I just wasn't sure how common that size was as not a lot came up in a search online - I'll check the hardware store today.

    Lowes has #10-32 set screw, but 1/4" only. 2 for 68 cents.
