Would anyone have a part # to the oversize screws used for the Charter Special side plates? Called Shimano, they said the only screws they have are the ones in schematic... Thanx

I would get them at the local hardware store. They will have stainless steel screws to fit.

I used to be able to get oversize screws from Shimano but not for a few years. I often need them because the screw holes in the plastic frame wear out fairly quickly. New frames are expensive.

Drill & tap for next larger size. Order new size from McMaster and you are all set.

You have a couple of simple options that require no drilling or tapping:

1. Place a splinter of mono-filament line in the original screw hole. Your original screw will work just fine now.

2. Use a regular 3mm stainless machine screw in place of the original tapper.
    You will find that this forms a neat interference fit in the original hole.

the side plate screws are sheet metal screws and not machine screws.

Cut small stripes from copper or brass und and put 2-3 in the threads and the screws can be tightend firmly.
This is an old trick i use for years to tighten srews in plastic reels.... not necessary to drill and tap oversized threads.

Yes, I am aware of this, which is why I referred to them as "tappers".

This recommendation comes come from a colleague who used a machine screws to solve this very issue:

Quote
an update on the Shimano Charter Special end plate screws stripping out; scored some 3mm 316 stainless steel machine screws from the local Yacht hardware. They bind nice and tight with the hard plastic body of the reel and bed down rock solid.

Also mono works just as well as metal strips but it is ubiquitously available and much easier to work with.

As stated, Shimano used to have the oversized screws, especially for the TLD series. Try asking the reel repair people and not the parts people.
