Just realized one of the screws on my handle has fallen out, despite my vigilance and maintaining proper torque on all empeg related screw devices.

Anyone have extras?

You maintain the torque? Like, check it often?

For which screws besides the sled mount screws and the screws on the bottom of the drives? Those are all I ever worry about (or lack thereof thanks to ThreadLoc).

hehe, no i don't actually maintain torque.. just kidding. I was just implying that i check them often. I check the docking connector screws, drive screws, drive tray screws and handle screws every month or so. I should just get some threadloc eh?

Look for loren's new book, Zen and the Art of empeg Maintenance, in bookstores everywhere from Simon & Shyster Publishing, Inc.

We probably have some here somewhere. Did you lose a big one or a little one?

It's one of the little black ones that you see when you flip the handle up, two on each side. My top left side has gone astray.
