Screws
All my screws are close to being stripped out. What should I replace them with to 1) ensure a good fit and 2) easily avoid stripping them again?

Specifically, I need to replace the screws on the head that hold the filament loading door closed right now, and I will need to replace the bed screws when I add elf foot clips, the long screws that attach the pylons to the head and the slides when I replace the pylons per @Grayed 's advice, and then the fine tuning screws on the slides eventually when I get sick of using pliers.

We were discussing this before.

I think @Stenoxp had some thoughts on the filament door as well.

I am planning on using inserts to secure the screws.
I was looking at something like these ones. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/302105414719

They come in 10's, 20's or 50's.

This mod needs to be pinned to the main board! I was honestly thinking about this the other day!
