Any surf shop should carry those or Webby or use futures ones as NC said.
You must have some spare boards you can Borrow a few grub screws from ?

Re: Mentawai quiver.

Have had success with the supaglue .. clean head of grubscrew out with some metho and a toothpick and air dry before gluing and dont get any glue on the box thread..you can drop a short piece of plastic drinking straw in the hole to shield the threads
Theres some vids on youtube i think.
