Title: Neutrik A-Screw alternatives
Post by: home_listening on November 07, 2019, 01:31:53 AM
Hey Braintrust,

I'm after an alternative to the original Neutrik screws for their A, AA and B series XLR connectors. Can be seen here:

Ideally I'm after something countersunk such as the link below (something with a smaller min order is essential), was wondering what people are using if not the Neutrik branded units. I'm not fussy about drive type, torx is great as far as I'm concerned. I'm based in Australia.

McMaster Carr is in the US but maybe the details will help you find something local.

Oof, looks great!

Too often I forget McMaster exists.

Cheers
