I need a new screw for my target sight that will allow me to loosen it without the need for tools. What would be ideal is either a knob or thumb screw with shoulder.

The screw I have now is a 6/32, 5/8" machine screw with a hex head. Does anyone know where I can go to either get two or have them made? I've tried Lowes, Home Despot, and the local Nut and Bolt shop. All a bust. I know a machinist, but I'm never sure of when I'm going to run into him...

Not sure what you're looking for but try "McMaster Carr", an industrial supplier. They have an amazing catalog that will keep you busy for DAYS! They carry just about every type of screw or knob available, metric or standard.
Good Luck!

You didn't mention the brand, but have you tried to contact the maker?

Sight is an old Chek-It and from what I understand, they have been out of business for a couple of years. Sorry, I should have added that to my original post.
