replacement screw for linkage stopper

#1
I am using the linkage stopper the came with my power pack and I lost one of the screws that lock the linkage. Does anyone know the size of that screw so I don't have to order a new pack on linkage stoppers?

If you are in the USA and have a local hardware like ACE or True Value, they will have a display with thread sizes to test with, then just pick the closest length that you like for about 30 cent each. Local hardware stores are the next best thing to hobby shops.....

All I know is they are god awful small, if ACE does not have anything you could try Fastenal many towns have retail outlets.

If they've got little screws, you could try one of the extras from your servos. Alternatively you can source linkage stoppers online for ridiculously cheap. You'll want a pack of them, anyway. :)

The little screws that come with the servo are threaded like a wood screw and won't work.

Yeah a pack of new stoppers are cheap it waiting for them to shop I was trying to avoid. I didn't know if those screws were a common size used in the hobby like the old 4-40 screws that went in all your engine mounts and wheel collars.

Some of the metal gear 9-5 gram servo screws will work as they are a machine screw I had to do that once but cannot for the luv of me remember what servo the screw came from.
