Does anyone have a source for shear pins for a 700. I checked the local stores and nothing.

The factory pins are a softer material than an average nail. you would be better off using a piece of brass stock than a nail. Talk to someone who has snapped an auger or broken something in the ratchet drive and they will agree.
