    I'm looking for these bolts (in photo) in black.

    M5's (I'm pretty sure)
    35mm long

    What do you call this head?

    Thanks

    If it's for a piece of furniture , then I've often found a friendly chat with the manufacture gets you what you want free of charge.

    Don't ask don't get

    It looks a lot more like a cheese head to me, but they're almost always slotted, not allen.

    that's interesting, I've got a few of those in my tub of unexplained screws.

    Don't know where they came from. I thought it was kitchen units.

    I've just found one in the shed, it's 70mm long. It's from one of the wooden bed frames.

    If you search ebay for machine screws you'll be in the right ball park.

    Thanks for the replies, the Furniture Bolt has got me closest in shape.
    Unfortunately I can't find the manufacturer, just the importer who gets the whole thing in bulk.

    You can have the one that I have in my shed. It's 70mm long but you can cut it.
    Also, I found this cross dowel bolt.
    or Screwfix
