Does anyone know where I can find replacement screws for the white plates on a wartime Ricky B6?

My understanding is , they are 3-48 stainless steel Button Head Slotted.

You can order them from ACE - while you are at it , I recommend getting a 3-48 tap to clear the threads in the carcinogenic material those are made out of.

Rick Aiello is the true expert on this subject.

Hope this helps. Very Happy

The exact type head is not available, from what I found. A similar head is available. You might try McMaster-Carr for those. Getting some longer than normal lengths of those is a good idea, in case the threads in the upper part of a hole are stripped a bit.

And good advice from George about getting a 3-48 tap to clean the holes, and maybe add more threads in the bottom, if upper threads are stripped etc...

Be very careful when using a tap that small !! Very Happy
