Mitre 10 has small but not tiny screws. Where do I get tiny wood screws?
Perhaps a hobby shop / model airplane shop? URL ?

Have bought them from both Mitre10 and Bunnings in last few years.

The smallest ones they have are not small enough.

Thanks, but those are for metal, not wood.

R2x1 - probably, but no online store is linked.

plod - Yes a model shop is likely. NZ website?
Actually I have a friend that flies model planes - have not seen him in ages but will ask him where to get the screws.
