    none of these links are any good, I want screw bolt type, ie not a point, as it needs to screw into recess space of air, it does not screw into any material, flat end screw. I have been into a RS store, me of their screws work, I even took my vent in with me. I now which I never bought it, looks like ill sell on ebay.

    Is it this kind of thing you're looking for (self-drilling screw)?

    Or a machine screw like this?

    ... maybe its me not understanding but it does give the alternative option of using round headed screws ... the fact that it doesn't go into anything 'at the end' doesn't make much difference does it? :confused:
