Micro screws - any sources?

I am trying to find a source for micro screws as shown in the attachment. These screws are included with micro Hitec servos, and are great for a variety of build applications because of their small size.

Servo City shows these, but they are out of stock. I have scoured the web with no luck otherwise.

Does anyone know where else these might be found?

thanks

John

Try these guys Microfasteners.com they have quite the variety of small hardware. I believe that I've ordered from them and found their prices to be quite good.

Those are generally found as 'servo screws'..from most hobbyshops.

I too have found similar, but not identical products elsewhere.

Futaba makes something almost identical, so try a futaba main stockist.

You can mostly use 1.5mm self tappers as a replacement.

thanks vintage1..

that's good to know - 1.5mm as the spec. It's a very small screw, and not widely available.

What part of East Anglia do you live in. I have visited the town of Eye in the past.

DuBro has packaged ones, as does Sullivan I think.
