I just looked on Astroboot but could not see one.

I have one kicking around I am not using, but not going to shops at present, so might have to wait until I get some-one to pick up a prescription for me as the post office is in the Chemists.

It's a skywatcher one, presume one size fits all.

PM me if you are interested.

Yes they. Its called a SW knurled camera lock. £3.00 listed under spare parts for telescopes.

Well that's interesting! Now I even know its name 🙂

The SW knurled camera lock just gives you the 'nut' part. If you also want the grub screw, I believe the standard for a camera tripod mount screw is a 1/4"-20 UNC. You can get these as grub screws/set screws from e.g. Accu

You might want to check the length required, and the size of Allen key used to tighten it.

Your local DIY shop (our's is open) should sell them also. I bought several of the appropriate sized screws (philips head) with ease.
