    Should I make more M3.5 X 0.6 X 6mm screws for the Vintage Sako Split Ring Scope Mounts?


    With all the new members, I was wondering there is enough interest to justify a new run of screws. I am guessing that I need about 60 sets of 8 screws (around 480 screws) to justify a run. At that quantity pricing will be about $2.60 per screw. I need a few comments on the feasibility of doing so, buts let's keep this thread short. IF YOU HAVE A DEFINITE INTEREST SEND ME A PM. I am stuck home with a huge kidney stone and will be having 2 or 3 surgerys in the next few weeks. I have time to try to put it together if there is enough interest. So there is no confusion I am attaching a picture of the rings with the new screws that I had manufactured last year.

    M3.5 X 0.6 X 6mm screws for Sako rings. Doesn't anyone need/want screws?

    Bloo,

    Thanks its a start. I kind of gave up on making the screws because it took me so long to sell the 850 I made last year. But, we have many new members.

    How about we PM Tracy about these extra screws? He has to search the posts to see who wants what. We are doing this on the site hoods - which should now be within everyone's reach with all those tax refunds coming in.:bigsmile3: Or not:cry3:

    Requests for new screws are up to 22 1/2 sets (180 screws). If I get requests for about that many more, I will start the manufacturing process. I didn't earlier mention that I have a couple dozen of the .8 X 5.5 mm bits that are the proper fit for these screws. I will include one bit no charge with each order. Additional bits are $1.00 each. If you purchased an extra bit with an earlier order and don't need another, let me know and I will credit you $1.00 on your new order.

    If you have any questions or want to place an order, Please send me a PM. Let's try to keep this thread to a manageable length.

    Regards
    Tracy

    I prefer to sell the screws for vintage Sako scope rings in sets of 8. If you want some matching spares, I will sell in even quantities of 2, 4, 10, 12, etc. Also, here is a picture of the bit that I am supplying no charge with each order of at least 8 screws.

    Keep the requests coming. I need requests for about 120 screws (15 sets) to get a firm price and start manufacturing this last run of screws.

    Screws for vintage Sako rings - in one week I have received requests for 188 screws. I need orders for about 112 more screws (14 sets of 8) to start the manufacturing process and firm up the price. Keep the orders coming. If you think you might ever need some, this run will probably be my final run.

    Tracy,

    Put me down for an additional set of 8 on top of what I ordered a few days ago. Don't want this project to stall for lack of volume!

    Requests for Vintage Sako Scope Rings screws are up to 236. I emailed the order to my vendor. He uses this as fill-in work, so I expect that this batch will be ready by June or July.

    Hi,

    I would like to purchase eight screws and the driver tip. I live in the UK, so if there are additional shipping costs pls advise. To keep things simple I would be able to pay in USD cash notes.

    Best Regards,

    Stuart

    Requests are now at 284 screws. I am going to tell the machine shop to use 3 full rods - about 380 - 390 screws. I will only be able to accept requests for 8 more sets (96 screws).

    Even though the scope bases I have are screwed together on an angle and not like in your photo I feel that they will be perfect.

    I have a photo of my S series showing the scope bases on one of my preveious posts.
