    Screws for JK Controller Handle

    Hi,

    I'm looking for the longer screws for the JK Handles. The long Parma screws are about 1/5" (5-6mm) too short. As I'm more used to metric sizes it would be nice if someone could provide the correct dimensions or even a link.
    The long Parma screw is about 0.94" with head and 0.86" without.
    BTW the short Parma screw fits perfect.

    Thanks a lot,
    Christian

    I can measure the ones I use when I put a JK handle on a controller. Let me know. Actually if you can't find them let me know and I will send you some.

    Thanks a lot :-)
    Does someone know the thread size?
    John, thank you, but I think shipping to Germany would be too expensive for some screws. I'll try to get them over here.

    They are 4-40 screws. The same as Parma, just longer than the Parma or Red Fox screws.

    Hi Kehlo,
    As I lost my original screws for Parma I just bought something like these from our hardware store

    and even glued the nuts into the shell so at least they don't get lost.

    Try the Prof Motor screws for their controllers...also 4-40, but the long screw is longer than the Parma. PMTR 2024 $1.50 set...Stainless Steel.

    Christian, PM me your mailing address and I will send you some screws. I have shipped controllers to Austrialia, Sewden, and England so shipping some screws won't be a stretch.

    Hi John,
    thanks a lot, that's very kind. I found a dealer in Germany who ships them by the piece for a decent price and already ordered there.
