I believe they are M3, and you need countersunk head, and I recommend getting hex head ones while you're at it... less prone to burring up with a good hex wrench.

(And I recall that 15 or 16mm was the maximum depth that would work in there regarding the threaded holes' depths etc.)

Re: edge pro block not perpendicular to plate

Ah excellent - good stuff.
Certainly solved my issue with my one particular EdgePro7 from a 2003 RG1527CB that I acquired in remarkable condition, but I found was plagued with this same issue - the block was loose, and kept working loose repeatedly, and fairly quickly.
15/16mm screws as above, and *knock on wood* that baby's been solid ever since.

@Opendome : You can search for them on the internet, just use M3 and 15mm (or 16mm) as keywords. They're fairly cheap as well you can get 10 screws for about $1.
