    Another source is J.I. Morris Co. Just do a Google search and you'll find them. They are also about the only distributor that handles 000-120 where do I find miniture metric screws size screws. Unfortunately they do not have the 000-120 where do I find miniture metric screws in a hex head style.

    Ah Foo !! The hex head 000-120 where do I find miniture metric screws is exactly what I needed. What I really need to do is put in an order with Scale Hardware. They have the hex head and the screw head which is only 0.5 mm wide. Translating that into 1/8 scale, it comes to about 1/8 ". You can use those things for all your real small needs.

    You find lots of small screws in some old non working filmcameras and other cameras, typewriters, mechanical calculators have lots of small springs to, old clocks and so on, wires and screws from old electronic.
    There are lots of things to disassemble out there at no cost.

    I'm buying my screws at: MVD Modellbauschrauben the smallest are .6 mm in brass. From 1.2 mm, the screws are steel.
    The hex head is reduced compared to nuts usually found in the stores. Unfortunately the site in in German. I can assist if needed.

    Hi Mike
    Thank you for your input. I just ordered screws and nuts from Scale Hardware. The German company I used to buy my screws has only brass screws and nuts for the small dimensions; I ordered by Scale Hardware items in stainless steel.
