There is/was a place in Sydney, that made Dodge Brothers parts.  I think the name was: Vintage and Classic Dodge parts.  I tried to look them up, but had no luck.  Give it a go, and see what you can find.  Chuck

They make castings, not screws etc. I think they are Vintage & Classic Reproductions, but the web site is down. You can make contact through facebook

My car was in such a good condition, that I reused all the bolts after cleaning!  I have a few brass slotted oval head 10/24, that in my case were for the step plates.  I also have 4- 1/4 20 bolts that are stamped DB, but pretty rusted.  More than happy to send these if interested, no charge !!  Please let me know.

I would be ecstatic. 

I have not found many nickel bolts.

I had lots of trouble getting the right screws for my Dodge 1930 DC 8 here in Australia, when i needed them, I finished up finding good suppliers in England, have lost the name now but there were quite a few suppliers over there of specialist wood screws,

My requirements were

Raised head

Screwdriver Slot

Brass

Chrome plated

Here in Aus 99% of screws have cross slots these days one struggles to get a screw with a slot in it, then they are chinese & not the quality of the English ones

I'll see if I can dig up the docket, with a name on it, but if you search the net you will find one of them, Price was reasonable about $10 Aus /100

 

I may have your No 6 roundhead, I'll check & let you know

 

regards

Kevin

Kevin here again , checked my supplies can't help as only have raised head. Its interesting that you have X head screws , I guess they are for screwing into the metal, where here in Aus we still had wood frames and all screws were wood screws, no metal threads at all, so another difference between our cars

This is what Wikipedia says about Philips screws:

"The credited inventor of the Phillips screw was John P. Thompson who, in 1932, patented (#1,908,080) a recessed cruciform screw and in 1933, a screwdriver for it.[3]

Biography

After failing to interest manufacturers, Thompson sold his self-centering design to Phillips in 1935.[4] Phillips formed the Phillips Screw Company in 1934. After refining the design (U.S. Patent #2,046,343, U.S. Patents #2,046,837 to 2,046,840) for the American Screw Company of Providence, Rhode Island, Phillips succeeded in bringing the design to industrial manufacturing and promoting its rapid adoption as a machine screw standard.[5] One of the first customers was General Motors who used the innovative design in 1936 for its Cadillac assembly-lines. By 1940, 85% of U.S. screw manufacturers had a license for the design.[6] Due to failing health, Phillips retired in 1945. He died in 1958. "

What is the screw on the left called. It has some type of washer that won’t come off. It used on upholstery. 

Does anyone know where I can find oval head slotted trim screws. Or should I use #8 oval head slotted nickel screws and use a finish washer of some sort.

I am at 75 oak View drive in San Rafael California 94903. Currently I am replacing all the wiring with correct cloth covered wire. And replacing all screws with proper slotted and nickel. Are there any other details that I may be missing. Like DB and other period correct tools and accessories.

I think when the washer is part of the screw (but still loose) it’s called a SEM screw.  So you have what looks like a Raised head countersunk Phillips SEM screw.
