    I'm looking for a source to obtain some of those tiny screws that come out of our transformers, they seem useful in scratchbuilding. I'm looking for variations of 5/64, but I cant seem to find anything that small. Been to the local hobby shops, Lowes, Home Depot, eBay.... any help would be ...helpful. Thanks ahead of time!

    Go to a dollar store or a big lots and buy a ton of the junkie toys that have screws. I got a series of "M.A.R.S." playsets from big lots a few months back for like $4.98 and each set yeilded me over 50 little screws of differing sizes.

    it would seem obvious, right? that was the hobby shop i went to, they didnt have anything close to it :p  maybe just a wack hoby shop.

    oh wow, so youre actually buying toys to take the screws out of. its sounding like i might have to resort to this. thanks!

    That's a great idea, just glue the figures/pieces back together and they are good again. lol Need to get me some of these if they are still at my store.
