Hello all,

just a simple question, but I can't find the answer...so...
Can anyone tell me what size the screws are that hold the light lens to the chromed body are. There are four of them to each lens, 1" long, philips head, but I don't know the thread size. I need new screws and also to drill and tap a couple of broken ones.
With many thanks, George.

Another supplier. I use Westfield because you can buy in smaller quantities.

As has been said before, socket head screws are a good idea because the Phillips head screws can become worn and difficult to remove.
