    Where to find tiny wood screws?

    I need some teensy-tiny wood screws, but longish. About a Number 2 screw, but inch, inch and a half long. For old view camera replacement use. Any ideas where to find them Lowes doesn't have them, local Ace hardware doesn't have them.

    www.smallparts.com is one place to look.

    www.mcmaster.com is another.

    Try a good Ace hardware. I've found a number of tiny size brass screws at the one near me. Also, in Denver area we have a place called "Fasteners, Inc." You may have something like that near you. They have stuff you couldn't imagine.

    Lee Valley Tools is a good place to deal with:

    I buy all of my stuff at the local Ace, which is very well stocked on this type of stuff.

    Another souce is Micro Fasteners: http://www.microfasteners.com/.
    I recently bought some micro machine screws from them--a wide variety, good prices, and fast shipping, although I'm not sure if there's #2 that long.

    Thanks for all the great resources. My Ace, True Value, Lowe's and Home Despot don't have these long small sizes either. This is very helpful info.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Http://www.rockler.com carries some tiny brass wood screws, but I don't know if they have any that long. That is probably going to be hard to find.

    1/2-inch is the longest you'll find in this size (pan head). Are you looking for slotted pan-head? Are the originals that long, or are you trying to "bite" into new wood by going longer? Remember, you can fill existing holes that have become oversized due to age by using a toothpick, breaking it off after inserting into the hole with some wood/elmers glue. Make a centering dimple using a small pointed tool, and let sit for a bit. Then insert original screw and don't over tighten.
