Just curious if anyone knows any US sources for the hardware used in the UM1. I am referring to the screws and nuts. I really like the quality and design of these screws and would love to find a US source. Thanks!

    Hex head metric machine screws can be a bit hard to find in the USA, but it looks like Amazon has several sizes:

    Usually McMaster-Carr is a good bet for any hardware, but I don't see any hex drive screws on their site.

     

    Are these the type of screw you are looking for? http://www.mcmaster.com/#socket-head-cap-screws/=q5l6it

    If you tell me the type of screw you are looking for I can tell you if it on their site, I buy hardware from them several times a week for work, I would be surprised if they didn't have what you were looking for. Or you could just post a link to the nuts and bolts on the appropriate Ultimaker build website. I bought a UM2 and am very interested in the flexibility of the UM1s design, so I wouldn't mind reading about it to some extent.

    If you do go hunting around McMasterCarr and still can't find anything http://www.fastenal.com/web/home is a great place; Fastenal specializes in fasteners and a surprising assortment of random things.

    Nice name btw.

    Ah, yes, there you are. I figured they'd have them, but they seem to be categorized slightly oddly, and I couldn't find them. Note to self, Mcmaster calls them 'Button Head Socket Cap Screws'.

    All of the UM1 screws are M3 thread, a mixture of 10, 12, 16, 20 and 30 mm lengths, iirc.

    I had quite some problems trying to source these myself before I worked at Ultimaker. But then someone told me you should look for "ISO 7380" as that's the standard used for the screw. Made it much easier to find them in build for the cheap in Europe.
