I am getting ready to make a tote for an old Millers Falls #140 jack plane. I am making the tote a little higher than the original to fit my hand, so I need a longer screw. The existing screw, best I can tell, is a 12-24.
The problem is that #12 screws are uncommon. I googled and found one site that has them up to 3”, and I need one about 4 1/2”. I could get by with a 4”, by playing with the tote height, and recessing the top hole.
Anybody know of a source?
