Default windshield screws at dollar store

The next time you are at the Dollar store, pick up one of the large number calculators. If you take it apart you will have about a dozen small wood screws that are perfect for windshield installation.

A hobby shop which caters to model railroad will have a supply of small screws, washers, nuts and bolts. Probably more expensive, of course.

Seems like a waste of a good calculator!

I forgot to mention that the calculator had a dead battery and the battery cost more than $1. Just a pleasant surprise to stumble across the screws I needed from something I was going to through away. motorhd
