Thumb Strap/finger Rest Screws

Recommended Posts

They are difficult to find. Retain any that are still usable even if not perfect. Mark Adey at concertina-spares.com might have some. Model making suppliers sometimes have screws that are small enough, but most don't.

Can anyone advise where these very small diameter counter sunk steel wood screws can be obtained in the UK (in small numbers!)... ?


Also replacement case hinges and their screws too?

Years ago Steve Dickinson sent me about a dozen. They've all been used now.

The original long thumb strap/finger rest screws were usually 1" No. 1 size, but those havent been made for around 90 years now. Slightly thicker 1" No. 2 size are the nearest you're likely to find these days: 20 Nettlefolds 1" x 2 steel countersunk head woodscrews with the traditional slotted head


The same eBay seller often has other useful sizes too.
