    set screw size MP mold?

    Anyone know the size of the small set screw for the sprue plate bolt on a MP brass mold?
    Thanks.
    If you take a dog which is starving and feed him and make him prosperous, that dog will not bite you. This is the primary difference between a dog and a man.

    I don't have a MP mold, but the thread are guaranteed a metric one.
    Measure the outside diameter of the set screw with a caliper - the (approx.) measurements are:

    0.24 = 6mm = M6x1
    0.20 = 5mm = M5x0.8
    0.16 = 4mm = M4x0.7
    0.12 = 3mm = M3x0.5

    Thanks Cap'n.
    Asked MP and got a very prompt answer.
    M4x4 DIN 913 (pitch is 0.7mm)

    I bought replacements at a business that specializes in fasteners. I bought multiple for like .25 cents each.
