550ex Replacement Screws

Hey, this is probably the wrong place to put this but I know a lot of guys on here do stills as well so I thought I might as well ask. I just bought a used 550ex speedlite for cheap, but it was cheap because 3 of the screws holding the shoe are missing. After some googling I could only find one place that sells these, and they were $10 each, and I'd need 2 packs. I was just wondering if anyone knows if these are like standard metric screws I could go get at a hardware store, or if theres anywhere else to get them online. I don't have the flash on hand yet, it has yet to ship.

Re: 550ex Replacement Screws

For this kind of part I'd visit an old-style camera shop (there are two in my suburban neighborhood) that does repairs in-house. A Tuesday morning would be perfect, not too busy, and ask nicely if they have such screws in their big box of salvaged screws.
