You can probably find a suitable screw at Lowes. You need to know where your saddles are from. If they're from Asia they'll be metric. Otherwise SAE. Look in the pull-out drawers below the packaged screws for stainless pan head machine screws. I think the SAE size is 6-32. Take a saddle with you to check. Poke the screw through the plastic bag to see if it fits.

The local big boxes don't offer anything like that I can use; the hardware store 4 blocks from here is leagues better, but there are things they don't have.

I do like Lowe's for Deft gloss nitro clear, 13 ounce rattle can for $ 4.54 plus tax.

Compare that to Re-ranch.

AFAIK most Asian guitars use a M3 screw. Not sure about the other measurements though.

Yes, the stock Fender vintage-style saddles on MIM and MIA Teles I've seen use intonation screws that are 6-32; and the length (threaded portion) is 1 3/16" or 1 1/4". Glendale saddles ship with 1" long screws, and the resulting shorter end sticking out of the saddle gives them a nice look IMHO.

Thank you for the tips - it is actually a set of Glendale saddles I need the screws for. Someday I'll ask a question here that people can't answer :-)
