Small Metal Screw Replacements For Shin Guntos

Recommended Posts

Hello All

 

Looking for some advice on where to find replacement screws for ishizuke (Chape-tip) (model 44-blackish color), need one screw here, and one for Kuchi-Gane (throat) have no ideas where to even start as far as size etc (maybe .5MM???)

Also need a couple of screws for am early war shin-gunto (the type with open cast patina covered Tsuba and the fairly standard OD green Saya.

 

Any ideas on where to look?

 

Thanks

Lowe's, Home Depot and many hardware stores have bins and bins of individual small screws. Might try there. Just a thought.

Many years ago with a similar need I found a brass Whitworth screw of a particular size fitted the thread.  All I had to do was reshape the head (spin in a chuck and file to suit), then cut to length and Bob's your uncle (or Brian, or Guido, or Stephen...)

 

BaZZa.

Thanks for all the input. Went to my family Optometrist's office and all the eye glass screws were quite small. She told me that such eye-ware screws having been running much smaller in the last decade or so, so none came close to fitting.

 

Found some screws that somewhat fit at Lowes, but they had large hex heads that would not be easy to grind down.

Below is what I am looking for.

 

Ozzy-Samurai, do you have such spare screws to sell from your  koshirae sets?

See Picture

 

Thanks again for everyone's help
