What are the measurements of SME 3009 can screws?

I have bought an arm without the screws and can, and would like to add RCA's to a plate below. For that purpose, I am looking for some replacements screws that are able to hold the bottom plate at some distance from the arm. Diameter is most important for me, since I can always figure out the length, but would appreciate length as well :-)

Thanks already.

I'll do some last capacitors renewal soldering on my speakers by this WE. I'll do at the same time some last soldering work on my TT and TA with a friend (who can solder since I can't) and dismantle a last time my SME 3009 TA to set it all in the right place. By then I'll be able to provide you with all the measurement.

But maybe, you'll be better off spending some $ buying a whole 2nd hand base set (screws, female cable connector, TA base, "cape/shield" & screws) and re-sell what you don't need. BTW, I have a pair of spare new (unused) gold plated RCA's I bought with such a project in mind that I now dropped if ever you'd care to DIY a plate to fit them on with that conversion...

I believe this information is contained in the service manual.To my knowledge,all of the SME fasteners are BA (British Association).

I have tried contacting SME, but still haven't heard anything. If someone stumbles by and knows the measurement of the can screws, I would still really much like to hear about it :-)
