Can anyone confirm what size screws should be used in the Rigid R22002 base?
I measured and was fairly sure that they were M5x0.8, however…
The longer M5s that I bought were uncomfortably big for the tapped holes in the router base . I didn’t want to damage the holes so I didn’t force them in.

Maybe these are actually an imperial size that is coincidentally very close to M5x0.8?
Maybe I bought some crappy screws that were manufactured to imprecise tolerances?
Edit: These are the 3 screws that mount the round, clear router foot to the base of the router.
