I have looked at great length for a square headed bolt like this.
I comes out of a Kity 635 planner thicknesser which I am due to sell due to lack of space. I only want £175 for it I could stick it on a pallet if it helps
I am not expecting anyone to know where I can get one but thought it worth a try as I don't want to replace all the bolts.
Bolt size 9.9mm square head
15mm overall length
I have tried Sheppach.com and NMA agencies but no joy.
Many thanks if anyone knows where to try.
All the best
Could you cut and file a square piece of steel the same size as the head then drill and tap an M6 hole in it and screw & glue a piece of studding in ? A flash over with matt black paint would finish it off.Spelling mistakes are not intentional, I only seem to see them some time after I've posted

Thank you for your reply that was quick to come up with that. I guess I could go with your idea if I cant get a bolt. I was thinking of replacing the bolts to all hex head but it seems a bit wasteful. I guess they want to high tensile due to the stress on them.
Hope your project is coming on it sure looks great.
It was just a guess because I didn't know what they did on the machine.
Re. my project, it's finished, the thread shows all there is to know, I just need to make something with it now. Next I need to do mortice & tenon, fancy dovetail types but not the regular dovetail shape.Spelling mistakes are not intentional, I only seem to see them some time after I've posted
Silly me mate not mentioning what the bolt does! I holds a cutter wedge.
Yes, I think the cut out in the table is great, I can see it being very useful. I look forward to hearing what you make.
All the best
I knew you were going to say it holds the cutter wedge, it's similar to mine and the first thing that came to mind when I saw it. In that case I would try to get something better than my first idea.Spelling mistakes are not intentional, I only seem to see them some time after I've posted
Yes, sorry my fault for missing the most important detail!
make one, you have the machines
I don't know about that!
Yes, I have a mill but not the software and to say I am finding my feet with it is an understatement. It is that old thing of we all start somewhere. I set eyes on an old whitworth bolt the other day that made me think knowing it was good material.
bit of sq stock in a 4jaw on a lathe. turn it down then thread it ?
