    Here's one: where to find screws for M42 Takumar front hood?

    So I have a question or two to throw to you all.

    I need to find three screws for the front hood on a Super-Takumar 50mm f/1.4 lens. In particular, these three:



    which are found underneath:



    First question: might anyone know the specs for this screw, such as size, threads, or whatever I'd need to find them? Maybe someone has an old repair manual with this information on there. I'm optimistic.

    Second question: where might one find these online?

    Were I in either of the last two cities where I lived previous to Montréal, I'd just go to my camera repair specialist. Around here, I have no idea who, if anyone, does that — especially for older equipment. The only references to any repair in this city — all two — have "AVOID" klaxons as a huge warning to their dodgy quality and service.

    Cheers.

    The screws have metric thread M1.7x4. Anybody who repairs watches or cameras should be able to help you to get some screws.
