The bins at Lowe's IIRC -- I just bought that screw with a hex-head in stainless. Home Depot is terrible for screws in comparison to Lowe's.

boltdepot sells singles. I go McMaster for bulk since it shows up in a day and boltdepot for one- off orders.

Your link literally shows a link to Home Depot for a 2-pack.

I noticed that, but the guy that asked for my help swore they told him it was not something they sell. I am looking at bolt depot.
Thanks to all.

Boltdepot.com was originally a small family hardware store called Cazeault Hardware in Weymouth, MA. My dad first brought me there about 40 years ago. They had the most incredible selection of fasteners I have ever seen in one place, most of which is not listed on boltdepot.com. Cazeault got croweded out by Lowes and eventually went to online sales to survive.

The last time I stopped at boltdepot I needed silicon bronze bolts and stainless nuts for mounting an outboard. I spoke with one of the guys and he said they still had all the old fasteners, If you ever need something and they don't have it listed it's worth a call to see if they have it.
