    IMG_0425 - Copy.JPG Anyone know where I can buy a replacement 510 screw for the profile rda? The head broke off the screw on one of my profile rda's. It's the larger screw that the smaller squonk or solid screw screws into from the bottom. Did an initial search on the web and couldn't find anything. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Fwiw you can go to home Depot..find the metric screws,,, I don't know anything about that atty,,, but most use mm2.5 (thick) screws ,,, go look at all of them, pay attention to thread pitch,,, the worst case you end up buying a screw a little long that you may have to use a hack saw to shorten.. some attys are foregiving on this issue... Also,, look at 2.5 mm threaded rods.

    Same notes if pin is 2mm

    Metric screws are near the little baggy screws,,often in drawers.- be "flexible'

    Thanks for the suggestion but the screw is a step down design meaning it has 2 different diameters. If you look closely at the picture you can see that one end is thicker than the other.

    Its been a couple months, but I ordered replacement squonk pins for the profile without issue from the page I linked. Maybe try emailing them about it?

    fwiw,, 'squonk pins' are called 'vented cap screws' or vented screws in the ultrafine electrical world,, where they control gasses etc.
