Take a piece of steel, ruler etc., flat bar..............throw some magnets onto it................now hover over the area that you think the lost screw is, you should pick it up quickly.
If you need it brought back to life and a new screw, contact me.

An exhaustive sweep of the floor with flashlight, fingers, and magnet was fruitless. (Damn.) What is the easist source for a replacement? Is there a stock item from Walthers that fits?
