Default dw610 sub base screws

I just purchased a dw610 off of ebay. It did not come with the sub base or the screws to attach it. I guess I will order a replacement sub base, but I don't know what screws to use. The DeWalt part diagram simply calls them "SCREW,SELF TPG." but the B&D 3310 manual says "#8-32 x 5/16 Binding Hd. Screw"

Does anyone know the proper size for those screws? Thanks.

I'm not home or I could measure them for you. I suspect they are metric because I have measured the shaft for the collet nut and it's metric. It's a good little router.

I won't be home for 10 more days but if you can wait I'll measure the diameter, thread pitch, and length.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

They're called tri-lobals.
And they were self tapping.
But they're 8/32 x ~3/8" pan head slotted.
Need a collar plate?

Chuck - thanks for the quick reply.

Pat - I came across your website when I was searching for info on the screws. Probably going to shoot you an email.

Frank - That was my thought as well.
