Friends,

Does anyone have the screw dimensions for a Meade 10 inch SCT Fork mount.  There are 3 screws on each side that attach the fork to the OTA.  I need the dimensions please.

Thanks
CR.

If you're talking about the ones that go into the OTA itself, I found the cheapest easiest method is to buy the Harbor Freight ballhead allen set for SAE sizes it's like $7 and has proper sizes for pretty much any allen head on the LX telescopes... https://www.harborfr...-set-94680.html

Thanks. I was looking for the dimensions of the screws themselves.  Length and thread.  I have an OTA, and a Fork, but have no screws!  If someone has the dimensions, I need to buy the 6 screws.
