I've looked high and low, far and wide, and can't seem to find anywhere online that provides a solid selection of different size, and length camera screws, washers, fittings.

 

I've tried searching camera screws, hardware, mounting hardware, and no dice!

 

Surely there has to be somewhere?

Hi Ken,

 

I have checked on B&H which is the best selection I found, but still lacks in specific varying lengths. 

 

For instance I really need a 3/8 tripod plate screw, that has a long un-threaded shaft before the threads to clear the thickness of the plate.  No where (in the film world of products) can I find a website that gives actual specs, in turn leaving me to search the industrial side.

I make these.

They're really long, I don't remember exact length. One set is 3/8" and other is 1/4-20.

I'm out today but I can measure them

Xcs steadicam makes a wide variety of baseplate screws under "additional sled components".

Look there too

My .02 cents...

 

You couldn't go wrong to have some of Janice's shoulder bolts in your collection.  They have come in handy on more than a few times for me. Thanks Janice!!!!

 

The hardware and her weight plates/ practice cages are top notch!

For short screws, I love the Miller screws. Perfect for Steadicam dovetails.

That's exactly what I need Janice, thanks for your response! I will definitely pick up a set of the 3/8's
