Thanks for the offer Adam. Since I've had the incorrect screws for 1.5 years, one way or the other I'm going to make sure I get the correct ones. I look forward to the day that I tighten my footstraps using a reasonable torque without fear of stripping the philips drive. It's sort of a dream of mine. One day there won't be covid and I'll have the correct footstrap screw. Yeah, I dream big.

Alright man I totally get it good luck. It sucks trying to find anything like this, in this city. If you change your mind and need something to get you through, just let me know.

I'd be into a bulk order for Torx footstrap screws and we could use my US address....

I'm a bit less motivated now that I just spent $25 to get some shipped from Chinook (still cheaper than shipping from Ontario). FWIW I also found a source for full-thread Torx M6 x 100mm (or whatever length) for fin/foil bolts.

Even if we got parts shipped to your US address, how would we get them across the border? I can't see it opening until next fall at the earliest.

My partner has to travel monthly to see her specialists.
Full thread torx M6 machine screws would be really nice for foiling. I'm hoping to eventually use Torx for everything.
