Miniature turn-buckle-screws

Hi there fellow modelers,

 

does anyone please know a source for functional brass miniature turnbuckle screws (M1 left/right thread).

The sources I used to purchase from do not have them in their programs anymore, and I´m running out of the few spare ones I still have

Would very much appreciate any hint

Many thanks

When you're looking for something like this...

I found them on a Dutch modelshop (mainly RC) website...several sizes.

The smallest is 8mm long, but it doesn't say anything about the eyebolt diameter.

Hope this helps.
