Or if you want stainless... https://www.mcmaster.com/#standard-rounded-head-screws/=16oxrur

Cut it down to length, and you can put the bolt in a drill, and use the drill like a lathe, spin the bolt head against a file until it is the diameter you need.

I think this is what you need. Might be last resort due to qty. and length.


M6 x 1.0 x 65 mm long fully threaded 18-8 SS button head 10.5 mm dia.

But you have to buy 10 - $7.83 + shipping

Do you actually want button head? They'll be larger diameters... for 10mm diameter bolts, see below for normal socket cap screws.
Here is a stainless one, 75 cents per. (https://us.misumi-ec.com/vona2/detail/221000551310/?CategorySpec=00000070644%3a%3a6%0900000070373%3a% 3a55%0900000070939%3a%3a1%0900000070998%3a%3aa%090 0000069992%3a%3aa&Inch=0&HissuCode=CSHZ-ST-M6-55) You can also get 30% off (I think) your first order with Misumi.

Or if you want a low head one (https://us.misumi-ec.com/vona2/detail/221000551220/?Inch=0&CategorySpec=00000072016%3A%3A6%0900000072118%3A%3 A60%0900000070206%3A%3Ac) (4mm head instead of the normal 6mm...)

Or titanium (https://us.misumi-ec.com/vona2/detail/221000551286/?Inch=0&CategorySpec=00000070644%3A%3A6%0900000070373%3A%3 A55%0900000070939%3A%3A1%0900000070998%3A%3Ad%0900 000069992%3A%3Aa)! For the low low price of $15 per bolt!

Paul sells this as a kit as well if you want to take all of the guesswork out of it.

i did see the Paul conversion kit

must be a button head because of space restrictions...regular allen head is a no go

good deal on the multi pack but i only need one at the moment

The low profile head socket head cap screws (linked above) have heads only .7mm taller than button heads, and have the correct diameter. Otherwise your best bet is going to fastenal, getting a normal button head cap screw, and grinding down the diameter.
