For those who come here via search: I just ordered the McMaster-Carr screws mentioned above (93285A412 ) directly from McMaster-Carr online with no company name, paid by credit card. They’re about $11 something for a pack of 5 now.
Web address is McMaster.com.

- the other option is to get the TSO GRC-12 Guide Rail Connectors
https://tsoproducts.com/accessories/grc-12-self-aligning-guide-rail-connectors/

 which include screws not prone to coming out, or dimpling your guide rails, or not clamping enough due to the low-friction, no-mar tip.

Oh, the 3mm Hex driver is included - all at a price competitive with the pair of Makita or FESTOOL rail connectors. ( not sure how much longer we can stay at that price).

Just thought some of you may not be aware of this Option.

I was going to order those, but at the moment they’re not available.

How long can they be? The ones on here are 7.5mm long, can't say I've ever measured my existing ones and they are kind of out the way right now.
Nylon tipped M6 set screws.
They even got the colour right for the obsessives.
