    Do any of you happen to know the thread size used in the Sinar rail cap (part # 429.21)? It looks like 1/4"-20, but it is metric and I don't have the necessary doohickey to measure it.

    Thanks!

    I don't have anything to measure with either, beyond a steel ruler, but a standard 5 mm bolt from my toolbox fits and the pitch seems to be 1 mm.

    Regards,

    Thanks David! I'll see if I can find a 5mm bolt over at my local home improvement center.
