Thanks! I just entered in your part # and it came up. After I put in the promo code, with shipping it only cost me $6.19

I also ordered Screw Checker/Shortening Jig
item 080-574-001 which brownells tech support says works with #8 screws.
When I get done I'll be qualified to sweep a machinists shop [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Here is a simple screw jig you can build for grinding. Take an old band saw blade (1 inch or wider X 6 inches) and drill and tap the sizes you need, you may want to go one size over the tap drill size listed and drill past the center of the blade so your out of the harden edge grind down the teeth also. This way you have something to hold on to as you grind and the threads are cleaned as you extract it from the jig.

Last time I needed the screws, just called Leupold and they sent me a set, not only base, but rings also.
