Default Replacement screws

Hi all, I wonder if anyone knows where to get decent replacement screws with lock washers for the backs of Vintage radios, is there any place that does them? I have 2 civilian receivers and a Philips 462A-15. The Philips especially has screws that don't really tighten and although the Civilians seem original there are a few problems with them.

TIA, Andy.

Have a look at "Stig Fasteners", he does both metric and BA in different heads and sizes. iI am rebuilding a Bush AC91 and have found a toolshop in Blackburn that stocks BA bolts in various sizes, some stainless. Hope this is of some help.

Regards, Tim.

I'll put in a commendation for Namrick: they were really brilliant at providing stainless-steel UNF-type nuts/bolts/studs a few years back.
