Does anyone know a source for the thumb screws that hold wedge style side screens in their brackets?
Or a long shot - the thread/pitch size?
Thanks in advance,
Jim

The threads appear to be 1/4-28; but the screws are far from ordinary screws. They have one turned-down shank near the knurl, where the pin retains them in the bracket; and another near the tip. Then the tip itself is rounded.

Here's a photo from another thread

Some of these and some quality time with a grinder might make something usable ...

I did not check availability I knew they had them listed in the catalog, my mistake.
