The operative words here are McMaster Carr. Check the prices from them in lots or 25 much much cheaper than Husqvarna or Stihl prices.

Check also the metric socket head and T-27 torx screw prices. Most often McMaster Carr prices are less than 10% of OEM prices on a per-screw basis and the screws meet the same or better the European standards used by the OEMs. Also many special purpose fasteners (travel limiter screw for 365/372) where you would pay $3 or more each from Husky are available in quantity for far less than OEM.

We all like to do the chainsaw work but there is no reason to get **** on hardware prices by the OEMs IMHO!

They also sell a self aligning tapped insert which work great for MM projects where you need to have a removable outlet to facilitate a spark screen.
