Radio Shack number 2 with 56 thread count.

64-3017 screws 42 in a bag different lengths
64-3010 nuts

Fastenal is local, I get larger ones there by the bag number 4 and up.

I went through my Altoid tins and used the Craftsman tool color code.

Blue, 3/16ths nut driver for number 2 nuts
Red, for 1/4 inch drive number 4 nuts
Yellow, 5/16ths for numbr 6 nuts
Green, 11/32nds for number 8 nuts

I colored the tins for easy identification.

Labrie,

Good tips from the guys above.

You didn't specify ... machine screws or wood screws ???

A well-stocked hobby store should have a good inventory of tiny screws. A jeweler or eyeglass shop will have an assortment of tiny machine screws.

Mini screws ect.

I read in here somewhere about somebody who was looking for small screws and maybe nuts and bolts. Found an ad in the latest MR from a company called Micro Fasteners. Their web address is microfasteners.com. They may be able to help. Pete

Good move Tj. Guess I didn't look far enough to find this thread. Now were into Smurfettes which I didn't know existed. Wonder what's next? Ha!

Hi Guys, For really tiny hardware in brass and stainless steel check out Scale Fasteners. It's pretty amazing.

Hello Von, if you want to edit just go back to your post and on the bottom right corner hit the edit tab you will be able to edit then.
But you only have 24 hrs to edit then you will have to have a moderator edit for you, bother them to edit as they placed the 24hr rule, it used to be you could edit forever, until someone went nuts deleting his stuff so they imposed a 24 hr rule.

Which I (and others) think is too short.:thumbsdown:

Here is a link for your suggestion,
http://www.scalehardware.com/

Welcome to the site.

Wow....Smurfette grew up.

I am surprised that "someone" didn't tell Reckers that this has absolutely nothing to do with the topic of this thread.:cool:
Plus just a little vulgar too, screws the topic?:confused:
