Here is the place to talk about all those equipment(Telescope, Mounts, Eyepieces, etc...) you have. Not sure which scope/eyepiece is best for you? Trash it out here!

1/4"-20 button head screws

Post by Athlon »

Does anyone know where I can find 1/4"-20 button head screws for my dovetail (so about 2cm long)?
I've tried a few hardware stores but none of them carry screws with such a large pitch.
Thanks!

Not sure what kind of screw that is, but you can try out this shop, they have 3 outlets around singapore.

Interesting Junwei! I will take a note also. I did not reply because all the hardware screw shops I know have all closed down including the one near Sungei Road. I am pretty sure there are others nearby but never go and check it out. :)
