    ? source of small screws

    Have a couple of wooden pinhole cameras and wooden view camera modifications that I plan on constructing over the winter and need a good source for obtaining small screws.
    Thanks

    Most TruValue hardware stores here in Pennsylvania are excellent sources of small, even micro, wood screws.

    My local hardware store is good for brass wood screws down to #2 but only in small and expensive packaging. If I need more than a few I buy from her:

    Small government?
    Prison for midgets?

    I tend to procrastinate on stuff. One of these days I'll do something about it.

    Also, try a hobby store that carries train or RC supplies...

    Ace Hardware. Otherwise find a local fastener supplier.

    We have the better of two worlds here in town, Ace hardware and Fastenal headquarters. Neither carry the small fasteners we need.

    I've found finding small screws in Au very difficult. I don't worry anymore... I go strait to eBay and look in China. So far I haven't had a problem with anything I've wanted. $2 or $3 for 20, 50,100 or whatever and you're laughing. And free international postage. Not only screws, but knurled knobs etc which are also handy.
