    I think Cathay @ Peninsula does sell them, thought I am not sure whether the prices are competitive!

    screw thread size is 1/4", you can get such screws from any hardware stores, but what type of tripod screw you are actually looking for?

    Any good hardware store.

    1/4" or 3/8" threads

    No details provided and we can't read your mind what you actually need.

    3/8" is for ballhead-tripod attachment. Most camera uses 1/4". Which model are you using?

    not exactly, 3/8" thread mostly use on larger camera, and also most tripod head, be it ball or pan and tilt heads.

    True.

    I prefer the 3/8" if I have a choice. A lot sturdier.
