What size screws, etc.?

I have just installed the pickup roller kit and the AC power module kit in my LW IIf. I found the videos very helpful, but (in spite of the fact that the technicians seem to encounter some surprises as they worked) there was nothing about exceptional conditions.

I had two issues: some screws were missing, and the head of one was rounded so much that neither a #2 Phillips nor a #1 Phillips would budge it. It would be helpful to note what to do in cases like this.

I'd appreciate it if you could let me know what thread size the screws are, so that I can get replacements.

I drilled out the rounded screw, using a magnet to contain the scarf. Is there a smarter way?

It's impossible to foresee every eventuality. There are a lot of shops repairing printers out there who have no business doing so. If you need any screws, email me where they go and I'll send you some. We have whole bins of screws from printers we've disassembled for parts.
