I am looking for a source to buy Knurled Brass Thumb Screws. I need several sizes ranging from #6 through 3/8” in size. I found a few sizes online, but I don’t need $100 of each size. I need several sizes, but only need 2 or 3 of each size. Does anyone know where I might be able to find these?

For jigs I press thumb type screws in a vise and that gives me the turning texture I am looking for. For other things I have not gone there yet…

I agree with MedicKen – McMaster Carr should have what you need.

I looked at the McMaster Carr website this morning. I do believe I can find what I need there. They aren’t cheap, but I only need a few. I am looking for these for the purpose of restoring some old tools (a locking screw for a few marking gauges and the locking knob for a bevel gauge). I could find the sizes and such in steel locally, but, for these old tools, I really think brass will look much more authentic. It won’t be OEM, but it will look good and it will work making them useful again. Thanks for the heads up on that company.
