    I have an Epiphone SG Junior and need to buy replacement screws for the intonation. Does anyone know the size of the screws in the bridge? Not the studs size but the screws in the rear for intonation, thanks.

    I don't know the size, however if the threads are not stripped you can pull one out and take it to a hardware store to match it up. You probably will not be able to find an exact replacement, but should be able to correct size and thread pitch. It will more than likely be metric.

    Thanks everyone, went to the hardware store and they appear to be M3 with .5 pitch.

    Yeah ... I was gonna say. M3 with 0.5 pitch.
    You guys didn't know ? Come on ...

    Where do you live Kevdog, to find such metric hardware at the corner store ? Surely not in the US of A.

    Actually, a lot of our hardware stores carry metric.

    Whereas the availability of metric still isn't as large as SAE, the large number of import cars and other items in the US has given reason for stores to carry both.

    I can usually find metric locally.

    I see those a lot in public bathrooms so it's harder for people to steal them. Imagine that, people stealing hardware from bathrooms.

    I'll bet nobody here has a 2BA tool.... for that matter I'll bet nobody here even knows what a 2BA is, except maybe Boo, Don or a select few on the other side of the pond.

    Robertson screwdrivers?

    Yup, we got 'em. Though, we usually call them, "Square drive." I have a couple of sizes in my garage.

    The square-drive screws are really common for building wooden decks. I have a box or two of them.

    Hardware store? Big box stores killed them all. Both big orange and blue had a good stock assortment of fastener hardware but now (my local stores anyway) it is cut down and what is there is not stocked properly.
    I was having fits finding capture nuts for an amp speaker baffle recently with empty bins, wrong sizes in bins, etc.

    Do you have a Fastenal? They have quite an online presence, but they also have stores in many cities. The selection is great. They often aren't right out in the open, though. They are often located in industrial park areas, as that is their main clientele.

    I still have an Ace Hardware in the area, though its about 15 miles away.

    Haha, I'm just pulling your leg.
    I remember maybe 30 years ago, I was In Cape Hatteras for windsurfing and needed to make a repair on something I had brought along and I was looking for a square drive screwdriver. Couldn't find one anywhere. All was available was Phillips and flat screwdrivers. They kind of looked at me in a bizarre way when I asked.

    Fastenal, I had forgotten about them. There is one not far from me,, Thanks Smitty.
    I'm hoping to build a speaker cab and at least 2 more tube amps as funding allows.
    May be a loooooong time though.

    Two old established independent hardware store have closed near me recently. These were stores that knew about their products, not just a bunch of shelf stockers.
