Aircraft instrument panel screws/nuts - where to buy?

Aircraft Spruce is a great place to get these. Search for "instrument screws". They have lots of other instrument mounting supplies.

Cheers guys!

 

One more question - what length(s) am I looking for? They're for the fairly typical instruments to fit to a CG-4A panel. And do they need nuts on them too, or is the screwing into the instruments from the other side of the panel all that happens?

Hello,

About the nuts, it depend of the instrument (and manufacturer). I make several copy of panel and some instruments have nuts, other no.

 

For the bolts, it is exactly (based on the original) this one for the CG-4A instrument panel ( but smaller for the switches)

I share the "blueprint" of the panel, in our page (in metric sorry)

The screws (new) and screws from the "field" directly unmounted from a Waco Glider.

Thanks for the info and pics - I bought some 6/32's a little while ago, but still had a fitting problem. Everything is in storage right now - will dig it out and recheck and let you know what was wrong.

 

Cheers,

Glen.

So nice ! :love:

 

I have just one, I know a other one in poor condition but "unsellable" for the moment and I had missed one for $100 in 2014.

Could you share more pics of the upper part of the control column (who is missing in mine) ?

Is the nuts who are missing ?

Some instruments, like altimeter, are a little more long than 3/4.
