I am looking for a source for the 11.5"  8-32 long screws for the cabinet for the Johnson Ranger. I would also like to confirm that this is the correct size.

Thanks

Try Rockford Products:

The have been in the screw business since the 20's.  My father-in-law (now passed) worked there in the 60's & 70's and could get any screw needed.

Good luck!

Other sources (e.g. http://www.mbzponton.org/n2awa/valiant.html ) list the long screws for a Valiant as 14" 10-24 thread, along with McMaster-Carr part number 99117A610. Don't know if this was shared with the Ranger or not.

If 8-32 is the correct size, McMaster-Carr has 12" long 8-32 phillips head screws, their part number 99117A380, $10.75 for a pack of 5. Always easier to cut them shorter than to cut them longer :-)

You could also go to your local hardware store, get some threaded rod, and solder acorn nuts on for a screw head.

One can also purchase steel rod of the proper diameter and use a die to cut threads of the right size on the ends.   Capnuts on the frontside look really good.  Chrome acorns.
