Screws, i have lost mine, silly boy.

Recommended Posts

Hello,  i have been restoring a 20 button Wallis, & have managed to lose the 12 screws that hold the ends on, can anybody advise if you can get them through Model Eng supplies, & what thread they are, Concertina Spares have them at £8 each x 12, i don't feel the urge as on pension, the Wallis is a Lachenal base not Jones.

Thank you so much, the panic is over, i just spent 6 days in a panic about them, even cleaned the car out, they had been put away by" her indoors" who had forgotten what they were, i found them by chance in a desk, she didn't realise i meant them, so it appears to be my fault,again! thank you again, very much for kind offer of help. Richard.

Here’s a lesson you may not have learned: If you had all 12 bolts off at the same time, it means you had both ends off at the same time. This is rarely a good idea, even if you don’t lose the bolts.
