The Hock combo (and I think the just the breaker) comes with a screw. I’ve mixed and matched blades and breakers and there has always been enough room if you pinch them together a little before seating the screw. If there wasn’t, I’m not above filing the underside of the screw head a little.

Since that’s a 19th century thread pitch, I just use a 3/8-16 screw for the ones I make from scratch or have to chase the threads for a screw I can find. Obviously not for heirlooms like yours but good on a Friday afternoon.
