Where to order Pentax shims/ washers and screws?

Hi everyone,

my name is Charissa from Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Since 2012 I make photographs with Pentax and I never want to switch to another brand again.

I have a question:

Where can I order Pentax shims or washers nowadays? Mine fell out and I broke it accidentally by putting it back in. Kinda clumsy of me.

These are the steps I took to gather more information:
- Use Google search which led me to the Pentax Forum
- The information I've gathered didn't end in a good result: Katzeye is out of business and the email adres of the Pentax Division National Parts didn't work
- I've contacted two camera dealers near my home, they didn't have the parts and forwarded my question to the supplier (Ricoh, I think)
- I've contacted Ricoh Benelux earlier on Facebook and their advice was to contact a dealer, this will end up in a endless cycle
- I went to the website focusscreen.com, but I didn't saw a contact-adres, so I couldn't ask them if they ship shims/ washers

There are also some alternative options:
- I can ask a laser cutting business to cut out shims, but I don't know if they cut small parts like this.
- I can wait until someone sells a defective Pentax k-30 for a low price (or another one with the same focus screen size) and take the shim/ washer out of the defective camera to put it in my k-30.

I find this kind of frustrating, because I can't sell my k-30 until the problem is fixed. I rather won't sell it as defective because I have to drastically lower the price.

My second question is:
Where can I buy the screws that belong to the Pentax k-30? Two screws are missing from an earlier fix.

I hope you guys can help me out.

Kind regards,

Charissa
