Supplier for case screws?

My Edge has gradually been losing the screws that hold the plastic moding onto the metallic body, the ones on the edge of the Edge, so to speak. I've been trying to find a place to buy more to replace the lost ones. I checked at Radio Shack, and they don't carry any screws. They recommended looking for micro-metric screws at a TruValue hardware, so I've checked around at a few of those and can't find any. I've also checked at Home Depot. I just sent off an email to Handspring Support today, asking if they could send me out some screws, but I don't have high hopes that they will help me.

Any other suggestions?

I remember reading about a similar problem and someone suggested screws from eyewear/glasses. Very MacGuyverish but seems possible. I own an Edge as well and always kept that in mind just in case. Best of luck

I actually ended up finding some at a local watch repair shop. They only had two, but it was sufficient to bring the case back in to a state of stability. The case is still missing four screws, one from each side. But at least now it doesn't start to come apart.
