Thanks, I'll keep that in mind, although I only need a few screws, not 150 :)

You'd be surprised how many you can get through over the years. It seems like every other radio I've ever bought off ebay has either the small central screw or one of the C4s screws from the mic' plugs missing!

Knights may possibly sell them???

Are they M2 x 4mm? That's just a guess.

Yeah it annoys me too. This is one I'm selling on ebay so I need it to be right.

I'm thinking M2 also.
Might just chance a bag of 10 off ebay for £1.21
