I am missing one of the screws that hold the quick change template adaptor to the fixed base. Anybody know what size I need to look for?
You take it to the hardware store. Then you try screws until you get one that fits.

With one of the screws most hardware places will have a board/chain that has different thread sizes both on the bolt/nut configuration. Try screwing it into what looks like the right size and read the size and thread count. Something like these I bought those as I have run into that way to often and the trips to the hardware store always seem to cost more if you know what I mean. Can't seem to just buy 1 or 2 screws/bolts, etc...........But check both metric and imperial as a few are very close to the same...at least the first few threads.

Yeah, I know I can figure it out using the checker at a hardware store. Tried an 8-32 I had laying nearby; close, but no go.

When I do find the right one, I suspect I'll have to cut it down..... the other one is short.

I was guessing that someone might know the size.... A quick internet search provides me the "opportunity" to buy that screw for $1.99-7.99.....lol.

If you're not close to a retail outlet, try calling Bosch's Help line. It'd be really helpful if you had the part #, or at least the cat. # for the accessory, before you phone or e-mail... :)
