Tiny Anchor screws for 2020 extrusion?

Kinda random but I need to temporarily use the center hole of some 2020 but don’t feel like tapping it. Is there anything that will allow be to use the hole without tapping? I was thinking about some like some tiny dry wall anchor screws but for extrusion…

Thx for any input…

A 5mm hole isn’t very big for any kind of anchor…

You could probably 3D print a tube with a 3mm ID and 5mm OD. It will need a flange so that you can prevent it from turning though.

Or, use a soldering iron to heat up your screw and “braze” it with printer filament.

If it doesn’t have to be too strong, hot glue might work well enough.

Self tapping machine screws will work.


This is the way. Thank you.
