We use a local supplier here (North Hampshire, I believe they are in Yately) 
who do small quantities of  UNC type American screws, quite a bit of our 
equipment is non metric. Can't remember the name but I can find out tomorrow 
when I get back into work and post their details. They will do small (<100) 
quantities, well they do for us anyway.

Best regards,
