I did a stupid thing. Rushing to get home I put the guide rails for the track saw in the van without tightening all the grub screws. The next time I went to join the rails, I was short one grub screw, it had shaken loose, rolled around and disappeared into either a nook or a cranny in the ply lining of my VW Transporter.
After a bit of cursing I found the ideal replacement, a slotted brass grub screw from a 30amp junction box (UK/IRL).
I think I might change the other three as well, so I’m not always looking for a 3mm allen key.

Funny, I switched the screws in mine to the hex head (it came with slotted). I was tired of trying to find the slotted driver.
