If anyone knows or better has one.
Where to source collimation screws for a 10TE

Try Donald Rothman, he sells all kinds of parts and pieces. That's who sold me a vintage lens cap for my 76mm/1200mm vintage refractor.

Here are the replacement screws for the 10TE cell:
They are expensive. Shipping will take your breath away. And you still need to turn or grind a slight cylinder section onto the heads for a perfect match. But it's the correct thread and several of us have used them.

Drill 'em out and tap 'em and use real screws.

I actually did that, mentioned in another thread on this subject years ago. I have a 10TE OTA as a guidescope on my Cave 10", and not concerned if the threads aren't original on that one. So it became the donor and got re-tapped.
These same screws show-up on other brands.
