Topic: Rocky Burr Set Screws (6 msgs / 142 lines)
1) From: McConnel
MiKe or anybody, any idea where I can find screws that attach the burrs in 
my Rocky? I managed to get the old ones out, but not without some damage and 
I couldn't find anything comparable at the hardware store.

Sorry, fortunately I've not had the need to find a replacement burr screw.
If you can't find one locally while EPNW doesn't list them, I'd call and
ask. Man that sucks!
I did have to find a replacement hopper screw I dropped down the sink a
couple years ago, but was lucky and had one same length same thread on hand.
(Sure could have taken the trap apart, but since I didn't have to didn't,
might still be down in there for all I know:-)

To all the good responses from the list, THANKS.
EPNW finally responded to my desperate weekend email. LSS, I ordered 25 of 
them with shipping costs = to screw costs. New meaning to getting screwed, I 
guess.

Yeah, sometimes shipping costs "seem" high in relation to what's being
purchased. That's one reason if needing something immediately I'll also
order other things I need or will need later at the same time, like cleaners
or gaskets etc., to reduce relative per item shipping.
OTH with gas prices over $3 a gallon I feel screwed every fill-up.

miKe, if your disposal unit uses the same P trap as the straight sink drain,
delete: "might still be down in there for all I know:-)" Maybe it's possible
if you use no disposal and only put liquids down the drains. Don't count on
it-
If you take one of the screws to a hardware store, you should be able to
determine the thread pitch and size. Socket head screws are usually more
serviceable and can be gotten as grade 8's.  Use them without washers,
otherwise the screws in the two burrs might bump heads- or you could grind
them down a bit.
For ten years' use since last time installed, the Mazzer's screw heads
weren't very worn. -Maybe next time.

Ray,
Remember I said I had a spare screw on hand the correct length and thread so
didn't bother taking the trap apart! But you're likely correct, since we do
use the garbage disposal screw highly likely long gone. Especially
considering it went down the drain 3 or 4 years ago!
