Sorry if this is in the wrong spot. I guess the hardware could be considered part of the finishing.
Working on some arts and crafts stuff and am looking for antique copper round head slotted screws like we’re used on originals.
Anybody have any ideas where to get them? I’ve checked a few places and everybody has pan head phillips.
Any help will be appreciated.

I got two ideas for you. Van Dykes furniture restorers or Jamestown Distributors. Van Dykes deals with all sorts of antique stuff. Jamestown is an awesome outfit dealing with boat building. If they’ve got what you want but it’s not antiqued enough there are ways to achieve that with simple household chemicals: ammonia, bleach, & vinegar are the first to come to mind.

Best of luck.

Copper? or brass? never seen copper screws,not saying anything other than never seen them.I would think they would be a use a manual driver only,or they will twist the head off.

You can get copper screws and rivets where they sell copper gutters.

Not sure if they’re solid copper. I imagine they are copper plated steel or brass finished to look like copper.

Have your say...
