Best source for screws for a Hermes Rocket body?

Hardware stores can't seem to help.
either too long, wide, or none at all.

Hi Ivan

As Hermes is made in Switzerland, you can guarantee that all fasteners will be metric. You will need to accurately measure the diameter of a good screw and figure out the thread pitch. Metric thread pitches are measured by the distance between 2 adjacent thread crests as opposed to imperial (standard) threads which are measured by threads per inch. Values less than 1 mm are always expressed as a decimal and never as a fraction. Figure out the length of screw you need, then search the site recommended by Jim. Hope this points you in the right direction,

Sky

There is a Gentleman on the Facebook Typewriter repair page who has a bunch of Hermes stuff. I can't remember his name but he may have original screws. He's in Europe I believe.
