I didn't know what machine screws were either. Basically, they look just like the screw part of the spikes, which are in the photo at the front left side. I took one of the spikes to the store with me, as well as the glasses case, and told them what the problem was, that the screw end needed to be longer. The guy tried all different sizes and lengths until I said if he could find one that was the right length, but just a little bit too narrow in the screw part, I would just glue the parts together. The drawer he found the right screw in sald "machine screws," which apparently means they are flat at the screw end, not pointed.


I have been looking for an evening purse and I had been looking at some eyeglass cases that I have. I've got the E6000 one of my favourite glues ever. Could you show me some up close view of the machine screws. (Really, I don't know what you mean). I'd love to see if you make any other designs. I am design challenged but I can copy. Thanks.

As you might know, we invented a glitter glaze that works on leather, manmade leather and fabric. It comes with a bottle of paint base and a little packet of glitter. Now, someone has to open the big jars of glitter that come from the glitter elves and spoon just the right amount of each of the 21 colors into their packets. Being the head honcho, Margot is that someone. Problem is, she's not the tidiest person in the Western hemisphere and after 20 or so packets, there are a lot of microscopic (but fetchingly sparkly) particles of glitter in her hair, on her cheeks, and decorating her nose. One day someone came in during this process and remarked, "This place looks like a glitter sweatshop!"
