In the process of replacing the TIM on my 5870, mostly stripped the heads of the factory screws. Does anyone know where to get some replacement or better screws?

I don't think Canada tire would have those types of screws, you might have to buy an old stock cooler, probably wouldnt cost more then $20

In fact , they do have screws that work perfectly, I also used to race electric/nitro RC cars/4X4 trucks, and thay have one of the best selections of small, and fine threaded items in my city. So so hard to find the little hex headed set screws that hold my 1/18th scale electric RC's axles onto the driveshaft(4X4 truck,8 inches long, does over 75MPH), Canadian tire even stocks them.
