If it comes to it, you could retap the hole with the next size bigger and get 2 bigger screws to match....
Hardly anyone would ever notice if both are the same...
Really good option and Latz certainly knows his stuff!
Another option is getting a new bolt the correct size and a nylon lock nut for it. Bit fiddly when it comes to remove your snare wires etc when changing the reso head but lets be honest how often will you do that??
Latz certainly knows his stuff Ron, no doubt.
I did think about the lock nut idea but thought I might get some brain storming done here basically to see what the experts can come up with. I think the lock nut will be my last resort. Thanks mate.
I'm not quite sure what you mean by "threaded." Does that mean the screw is stripped of its threads or the hole is?
In either case, if replacement parts are not available, you should find a tap and die shop and/or professional with tap and die tools that can help. Bring everything you do have to them, and they can help.
Sorry Jason, I will explain a bit more. I believe the screw has been ok but the hole on the backing/tightening plate has stripped. It will probably have been caused by me over tightenening the screw. I have lost the screw but but shouldn't be difficult to find something close to the size if not the same. The tap and die idea is a possibility but might be a bit pricey, will get a quote and see. Thanks for your advice.
