Where can I find screws for an atlas sound AD 11B mic stand adapter?

Just got a Mackie 802vlz4 and the atlas ad-11b mic stand adapter. The manual says I need "Trilobular thread rolling screws 6-32 x 1/4." I've been trying to find somewhere that will sell these individually. Lots of places online sell them but only in large quantities. Any suggestions as to where to find these screws? Any alternatives? They look pretty similar to machine screws...

FWIW I called atlas sound and Mackie and neither had any idea where to buy them individually. Lowes and Home Depot do not sell them. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

On what sort of surface do you plan to mount the stand adapter? I don't see why ordinary 6-32 machine screws wouldn't work if you can get a nut on the opposite side of the surface. As far as I can see from product photos and the CAD drawing, the mounting holes are just unthreaded, through holes.

There are 3 holes on the back of the Mackie mixer that these screws go into. I was thinking machine screws would work (as long as they're 6-32 x 1/4") but mackie and atlas sound responded by saying I should get the exact screws suggested. My guess is that the Mackie mixer is already threaded?

Any hardware store that sells Hillman fasteners will have them in stock. It is a pretty common fastener. Best of luck!

Ah, gotcha -- didn't realize that the Mackie was pre-drilled. If you don't have any luck at a hardware store, I'd bet Fastenal probably has them if you have one of their retail stores anywhere nearby. I've never had them complain about splitting a box so I could buy a small quantity of fasteners.

I think the main idea is that they will cut threads into the unthreaded holes without producing as many metal chips as a sheetmetal screw would, and they probably hold a bit more securely.
