Last follow-up as I promised. Went to Fastenal today. They were amazed to be holding a 1/4-28 screw with an 8mm metric head. Never saw anything like it before. Needless to say, they did not have much to offer. The best they could do was just what Brad suggested with a 3/8” 1/4-28 screw that I could grind down to work. I hope it never comes to that. My final effort on this will be to check all of the jointers the next time I am in Woodcraft to see if any of them might have knife screws that could substitute. I have looked at some parts diagrams online, but, like Delta, they do not provide the specs on their parts.

Finally, for Robscastle, a couple of pictures (not the best, for sure) to show that I actually do cut some wood on occasion. A jewelry box for my wife. Curly maple with wenge trim.

Nice work! I’m heading to town tomorrow and will check the “pull-out” trays at one of my local hardware stores. They have never failed me yet with the odd stuff they carry. Will post back.
