Question Stripped set screw in stud lock

Where can I find a new one for cheap? I stripped it while attempting to lower my action.

Its the small 1.5mm set screw that goes inside the stud lock. The one you have to loosen first before adjusting action.

See picture attached, its right below the " STUD "

Thanks in advance.

Re: Stripped set screw in stud lock

Nope, they only come in the studs. So asking if anybody has a spare from an old bad stud is the cheap way. Although I have a hard time believing any set screw stripped. I have an anchor with the stud in it and the set screw driven straight thru the bottom of the anchor, and it didn't strip
