Where to find these screws?

Postby Traveler » Sun Jun 17, 2012 2:52 pm

Hi all,

I'm looking for these M3 screws with a threaded length of exactly 8mm for my Vixen tripod legs. My neighbourhood hardware shop sells a slightly longer one but ended up it can't fit be used cause it's too long. Does anyone knows where i can find them?

Cheers,
Weixiong

Yong seng will have it for sure.
Kelantan lane near sim lim square (then go for killer laksa after that at sungei road)

Bring one of the screws as samples, tell the uncle to match it. Specify stainless steel etc

Good luck
