Any suggestions on how to remove this screw without destroying the connector? I have soaked in Kroil without any success. I guess I can drill it out. Does anyone know where these screws/bolt (standard not phillips head) can be purchased in small quantities? Thanks  Stephen

I have some slotted cheese head screws in sizes M4 and M5 but they are cad plated silver and not black oxide.  You are welcome to have some if you want.

If you have enough clearance, you may try taking a small cutting wheel (Dremmell tool?) and cut a deeper slot.  Also, with a screwdriver firmly seated in the slot, tap the handle with a hammer to maybe help break the rust free.
As for a replacement screw, I take the screws like John showed, and treat them with the chemical blacken that we have discussed earlier, it will get you pretty close to the original look.

That is what I did, cut a deeper slot. All my cheese head screws are stainless steel and the the Super Blue, liquid gun blue, doesn't work on stainless.
