I wonder if anyone knew where to get these super tiny screws that are used in vintage camera lenses like the Jupiter-8s and other similar vintage rangefinder camera lenses? I need a USA based seller and many suggestions from older thread have links that no longer work or the company is based in Europe.

I tend to lose these or the screws are so rusted that the head breaks in half from the oxidation when being screwed in/out.

I know I can "salvage" them from other lens but I rather replace these rusty tiny screws.

Salvaging is by far the most cost-effective way. Every once in a while I'll just take some cheapo zoom and take it apart - just for the screws and detent balls. The only things I ever have to buy are 2mm "takumar" balls and some mount screws.

Search for 1mm screws, for example, using favorite search engine. Ebay is another source...
