Trigger Shoe Set Screws

What is the size/threads for the typical trigger shoe set screw? Also, are the set screws available in brass?

The ones for the brass trigger shoes that K.macocker is selling should be 4-40 x 3/16.

It doesn't really matter what size they are, as long as it's small enough to fit.

Thanks for the help, guys.

Has anyone seen these in brass? I stopped by the local ACE Hardware this afternoon and found that they only had carbon steel.

Set screws aren't generally made in brass since it's fairly malleable and that's a bad property to have in a set screw. You can sometimes find brass tipped setscrews (carbon steel with a little brass tip inset in them) for applications where you need to tighten down on something without marring it. But those wouldn't look any different from regular setscrews when installed and cost about 10x as much.

You might be able to find stainless ones though.

Or, find a brass screw of the same thread, cut the end off to the length you need, and then carefully cut a slot for a standard screwdriver. I've seen this done before....

Makes a lot of sense, Phantom Power; I was wondering about brass being to soft for a set screw application, myself.

Walker - that is a great idea. While I consider myself as being creative in the arts, I find that my creativity in the mechanical realm is often elusive. Thanks for the creative idea.
