    I recently bought the fore/aft sliding camera rail for my CS 3-axis gimbal, after recently spending good money on some decent spare 1/4" camera screws for the previous incarnation of the camera base plate.

    When the sliding rail arrived, I found it uses a completely different style of bolt, with more of a conical shape behind the thread, so the older screws are no good at all.

    Can someone please recommend where I can get hold of some spares of this new screw? Is it a custom made screw (wouldn't surprise me, so they can sell replacements at a premium), or are they available elsewhere?
    Having only one is a risky game, haven't seen any other posts here on the subject.

    many thanks
    Chris
