I'm looking for a replacement screw for the screw that holds the head on a Wild M3Z microscope. Does anyone know what the correct thread size is of this screw?

Here's a photo of where the retaining screw goes. It's a screw with a small black plastic knob for tightening with fingers.

it is metric standard 5mm thread (M5x0.8mm).

you can find a M5x20 knurled screw on eBay. 20mm should be long enough, otherwise take 25mm and shorten it.

Link_Ebay_similar shape

cheaper but bigger grip
