    Go to a flea market or camera shop and look for cheap non working cameras that have similar screws or try clockmacker suppliers found this one on the net http://www.perrinwatchparts.com/cat_...ck_screws.aspx

    Good luck

    Can you measure the head diameter, thread diameter & length of another top cover screw?

    John,
    The dimensions are approx, but close. Body dia 2mm, head dia 3.5mm, length 4mm, shoulder dia 3mm, shoulder length 1mm. I have attached a photo of the existing screw. Click for enlargement.
    I took a screw from the acc. shoe of the Canon meter. It is the proper dia & thread pitch, but it is too long, no shoulder and the head is too tall.

    Thanks,

    Gerry

    I have a few extra screws, as well as covers or other parts. PM me with what you need, and your address.
