"Flower head" screws replacement
« on: April 14, 2019, 08:14:51 AM »
My tech just screwed up those even if I warned him about this.

I know, VV sells those, $18 is not cheap but fair... Add international shipping and we have $54 plus taxes. What would you guys use (instead)?

Hi Abraham,

I've got the Vintage Vibe sets in stock here:

https://www.electrickeys.co.uk/collections/wurlitzer-hardware/products/wurlitzer-200a-speaker-flower-head-screw-set

If you're in Europe, the shipping would be pretty cheap.

Cheers
Christian

No offense, but that is an awful lot of money for 8 screws, washers and nuts.  I personally would use hardware store screws.

No offense taken, it's just the nature of the beast when importing goods.
