Sup, anyone know where to buy REALLY tiny screws, like those found in watches and/or cameras? Maybe 1mm diameter fine metal thread? Should I just go try a jeweller or something?

It's for a really old camera, I broke one getting it out and I'd kind of like to not leave it out as it holds the focussing screen in.

Was rather hoping for a bricks & mortar store but if all else fails, thanks teq. Trouble is I only want ONE screw, I'm pretty sure most/all online stores won't just sell me one screw. I also have no idea what this screw is so I was hoping I could take one of the good ones in and some smart old guy who fixes watches/cameras would know what thread pitch and diameter it is.

if you can deal with their site (and occasionally exorbitant prices), http://www.smallparts.com.au may have some

Here's a picture of the screw. Click for omgwtfultrahuge. Don't ask me why the 10c piece is red, I didn't paint it.

Not sure what you'd call those screws but maybe call http://www.statewidefastener.com.au/ or http://www.boltmasters.com.au/

They are two Brisbane fastener companies I know of (which have storefronts).

Must be something in the water in Virginia because I've had a screw removed and the tyre plugged for free, the ends clamped on a custom clutch line done at a different place, free gas bottle for the forklift when the usual supplier was late and I had three trucks waiting to be loaded.
