vintage rear dropout adjusters???

I have an old Centurian Ironman and both of the long screws are missing. Can somebody tell me the proper term for these adjustors and possibly where to procure them. Thanks for your help.

Dropout adjusting screws. They are plentiful. You can get them at most bike shops. If not, most large online retailers such as Niagra Cycle Works, Nashbar, Performance, etc. should have them. Amazon sells them via other retailers. And of course, you can find them on ebay.

Your Ironman will take a standard size (3mm x .5mm thread). Some very old & rare Camapgnolo dropouts used a larger screw.

Thanks to all for the help. Yes I did see the other thread after posting this thread. I will say that I got the real help that I need with the proper term. I tried several versions on google but I never hit on the correct version. I did learn several things about the adjusters and the real reasons for them. It is a good day when something new is learned so I try to learn something new everyday. ......Too bad I am not capable of retaining it all.

I think it might be time to start putting my Campagnolo adjuster screw collection on ebay, even the CPSC ones seem to go for a reasonable amount of money nowadays
