Small screws can sometimes be difficult to find and can be expensive.
I get my screws from Fastenal. I have to order the screws but they are easily obtained
and economical. Around $3 for a hundred screws of 2-56 X 1/4"

I order from Micro Fasteners and 100 screws are $2.50 plus shipping and no tax. I always order enough different type of screws that I spread the shipping out so I am about the same price. I had lots of problems with Fastenal in the companies I worked for, so I never wanted to get stuff from them.



Rule 1: This is my railroad.
Rule 2: I make the rules.
Rule 3: Illuminating discussion of prototype history, equipment and operating practices is always welcome,but in the event of visitor-perceived anacronisms, detail descrepancies or operating errors, consult RULE 1!
