    I was flipping my Arc Angel and a screw came loose and went flying. Does anybody know what size the screws are and proper dimensions? Many thanks in advance.

    I'm pretty sure the pivot screws are 6-32.

    I'm going to have to agree because I tried a 4-40 and the head was too small and recessed into the pivot hole.

    Thanks! Well it's a start but the length of the screws is also needed. Perhaps one of you has a specific link to where I can acquire the proper screw. Yes it's a pivot screw.

    Anything from 3/16"-3/8" should work fine.
