Can someone help me find where I can obtain the very tinny screws that hold the brass door frame together on a crystal regulator door.

I have a stock of small machine screws, what size, pitch, material, and head configuration are you seeking?

Thank you for the reply.
The screw size is .050 - 1.25
Would you know where I can get a tap & drill for these screws?

Joe,
I am unable to help you because I don't understand your size designation.
The first number should designate the screw size. The second number is the thread pitch.
1.25 is a standard metric pitch but on larger threads.
What does the .050 designate? Is it measured in MM?

I don't think your giving the needed info. It seems your measuring thickness & length. If you have a jeweler or an optician nearby who does repair they will probably be happy to measure a screw for you.

Once you know that, sourcing a replacement will be much easier.
