Default longer base plate screws for Bosch 1617

Hey guys,

I just bought a Bosch 1617 Router and I am going to be attaching it to a Kreg Router Plate. The base plate screws are not long enough and appear to be an off size thread. I tried everything at the local hardware store and nothing fits. Any idea where I can get longer base plate screws for this thing?

Dime a dozen. Use the 3 hole pattern: 10-24.
Or if using the plunger, use 4M x 16mm to start. Dime/2 dozen.

Welcome to the Forum. Here's the three-hole pattern that Pat (quillman) refers to, same as what is used by the Porter Cable 690 so useful to have. Those screw holes may be filled with sawdust and hard to spot at first--don't ask how i know... (i've uploaded this pic so often i'm afraid it will wear out!!)
