This may not be allowed in which case sorry and pls delete.

I recently got a new old QSI camera. It is missing a couple of screws and a couple of them are a bit damaged through use and It’s irritating me as it’s otherwise in very good condition. I found some replacements- blackened stainless #4-40 cap heads from Accu screw but min order quantity is 25 of each length. They’re reasonable price around 50-60p each but i need 2 lengths and don’t really want to spend £25 just to calm my ocd! So i was wondering if anyone else would be interested in a group buy? Or any idea where else i could get similar in smaller quantities?

you can get smaller (and cheaper) packs of screws from amazon. In this case search for '4-40 socket cap screws black' and hopefully you can find something in the right size.

finding blackened stainless isn’t so easy- i couldn’t find any on amazon or ebay- the normal black oxide type rust. I found one size (1/2” for the missing awkward wsg  cover screws)  i can buy individually from Accu in A2 grade ss  which is good, but not the others unfortunately. I think i’ll just learn to live with their damaged heads and just paint the silvered bits black 👍
