Hohner Coverplate Screws

Back to the Maintenance, Repair and Customization Room

Does anyone know where I can buy the kind of screws that Hohner use on either the MS coverplates or the MB Deluxe.
I'm currently using machine screws and nuts but would prefer to use that 2 part screw assembly (I think they are called set screws?) for my harp coverplates.

Try the German site http://www.harponline.de and also go to http://www.hohner.eu and then go directly to the model, and there should be place to click for parts. What they're usually known here in the US is generally known as cap screws.

BTW, the cover plate screws on the MS series just flat out are horrible. I seriously doubt that they're made of stainless steel because that metal is tough as nails, and to me, it looks like cheap, crappy white metal and the big problem is less with screws stripping but the slot that the screwdriver goes in gets shredded easily, and the correct screwdriver is a Pozidriv #1, and here in the US, they're hard to find and the only real good one I've ever found were the ones made by Wiha http://www.wihatools.com.

If you intend to work on Seydels at some point, the correct screwdriver for those is a Pozidriv #0.

Or you can go to Mcmaster-Carr they will have what you are looking for you will just need to know the thread pitch and length.

Make sure those cap screws and nuts are stainless steel because those are strong and will last far longer than the crappy white metal Hohner uses.

Absolutely and that is why I suggested Mcmaster-Car I tap my combs and use an SS allen headed cap screws.

Thanks for the tips on the coverplate screws guys.

I'm also currently trying to find a UK source for decent reedplate screws. As I'm not overly happy with the ones I'm currently using. I'd like to use the same screws that the Lee Oskar reedplates use (those are the best I have found so far), but can't find a souce in the UK. Anybody know where I can get some of those from?

The screws that the LO's use are made of stainless steel.

I've been looking for replacement screws for the coverplate of my Hohner MS (I lost one of the screws the other day). Went to the Hohner site and with shipping 2 screws would cost $16 which is half the cost of the harmonica itself - ridiculous. Has anyone found a more reasonably priced source?
