    A good screw

    Apart from the obvious, I need 2mm dia' brass countersunk nuts and bolts, but only about two dozen of them

    In this area anything less than will hold a timber bridge together is considered sissy and is unavailable - I can get 2mm ones to special order, but I will need to buy a kilogramme of them

    Try some of the online modelling shops. How long do they need to be, I'll drop into a couple of local screw shops while out tomorrow and see what they have.

    Maybe at a hobby shop?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    If you can find American sizes, a #2 machine screw is very close to a 2mm, as I recall.

    The British Association (BA) threads were quite common at one time in the UK and it's colonies:

    10BA = 1.70mm Dia
    9BA = 1.90mm Dia (non-standard)
    8BA = 2.20mm Dia

    Might still be available from a few good model shops outside of England.

    When I needed to get screwed, I got my M2 hardware from Microfasteners in Lebanon NJ. 1-800-892-6917. They had a website but it isn't listed on the label. I seem to recal the price was reasonable and they offered small quantities. My experience at hobby shops (even the ones specializing in radio control) wasn't as good -- they seemed to have low stock in small screws, or pre-packed screw sets for specific vehicles that were VERY expensive.
