What screws for DIY led?

They're XMLs and was thinking I might move them eventually to add some reds and blues down the road

Make sure you have a plastic or Teflon where that goes between the screw head and led to avoid any shorting

All your base I typically use stainless self tapping sheet metal screws.

Unless you have plans to remove/replace/swap the LEDs often, I would just use thermal epoxy. It's quicker, and to me, not having to drill a bunch of holes is worth potentially ruining a $3 part.

I'm attaching my LEDs to the heatsink with screws and grease but what screws do I buy?
