    ilex no. 3 acme face plate screw

    Anyone have a source for tiny tiny faceplate screws? It's about 1.7mm wide and 2.56mm long and no clue what the tread is. Good news I do have (1) but would like to track down (2) to be matching. Lens only works as 'B' so may not try too hard but McMasters Carr doesn't get that small...
    Thanks for any assistance.

    Suppliers of micro-screws andbolts for model railroading will have what you need.
    https://www.microfasteners.com/ is the best source I Have found.

    Frank Marshman aka Camerawiz probably has them. Not sure if he is still actively doing repair though.

    Jim, that's a great source and they have tiny taps.

    The catalog can be downloaded.
