The best way to find screws I think would be to find one of those Chinese companies and just order a million different types and threads and sizes, and pennies a pop.  Then you can always find out what kind of screw you need and order those custom.

Dave,
Thank you, not sure what I would do with a million screws ??? Never heard of pennies a pop obviously means something but never heard it before

I do have a string of thread guides, very good with a thread on one side a tapped hole the other, but they are not sold as far as I can find as small as you would need for repairing clarinets, they start at about 4mm upwards I would be looking for much smaller

Thank you Dave, everyone

Kaytee

Haha, I've used that phrase forever, though I have no idea where it comes from.  It refers to when buying a large amount of something, each something is very cheap.  I guess it's like when you buy soda ("pop") in bulk, the price gets reduced down to pennies per can (pennies a pop).
