Nylon ended screws

I use the Altair SCA for that reason - However on a SW Dob i haven't been able to find a replacement for the screw connector element that fits the Focus draw tube so that still has the screw retainer   - I have found one for SW SCT but not for Dobs.

Hi Leigh.


Did you find a solution to the problem? I'd like to do something about the lock screws that hold the 2" to 11/4"  reducer into the focuser on my SW scope as they damage the reducer spigot. I've just bought a nice 2" diagonal and don't want to chew it up!

Thank you Adrian. 365 list a nylon tipped 5mm screw 20mm long, £3.60 a piece though. The originals are 4mm x 10mm but it's an easy job to run an M5 tap through the threads and the extra length will make them easier to operate. Only problem is, they're out of stock  :( so I've messaged them to see if or when they might get them in. I'll post if I hear anything back.

I've had a reply from 365 who say they have ordered them from their supplier several times but they have not arrived. They recommend keeping in touch but can't say when they'll have them.
