Any one have ideas about the thumb screw of RSA - SR71/SR71A ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have a SR71A while one thumb screw at the back got lost accidentally. I cannot find any replacement around. Could any one kindly tell me where & how can I get one in UK ?

 

I actually asked Ray but he said he is too busy so only posts with FedEX, which means a pair of thumb screws would cost me more than $50...nonsense

 

Many thanks guys

Will the M3 screws work?

Or will this work?

IIRC those thumbscrews were custom made hence the price.  You could try taking it in somewhere to find out if they have something that works.

I tried, maybe I should go to some more RC shop next time. It is really annoying to think about this, however $50 for two screw thumbs seems to be ridiculous...

 

 

If the screw is in size M3, everything is fine.

Oops I am wrong, M3 is quite bigger

That sounds unfortunate.  But it sounds like you'll spend a lot of money just trying out different screws or you'll have to send your one screw in to make some customs.  I agree that $50 is a lot to charge for a pair of screws and S&H but it might end up being cheaper and save you quite a bit of head ache in the long run.  Perhaps you can place a WTB ad in the FS section and hope someone has a spare they can sell you.

 

Also have you checked McMaster-Carr (sorry I'm not familiar with a UK equiv)?  http://www.mcmaster.com/#thumb-screws/=9xp9rj
