I accidentally stripped the head on the set screw for one of my Archon v3.1 emitters. I know it's 3/8" long, but I need to know the thread.

I'm hoping it's 8-32, that'll be easy to get. Any help is appreciated.

It should be 8-32. I have the 2.1 and that's what it is. As far as I know, there are only a handful of hilts that use a different size.

What SFD and Rapine said. 8-32 are the most common minus a few sabers.

Points for all the knowledge you two!

Thanks all. I guess it's safe to order the replacements.

If you stripped the existing 8/32, you *may* need to drill a slightly larger hole and tap that, depends how bad it is.

Truth.

It does sound like he's stripped the "tool" socket though.  I've done that.  Roll Eyes

Oh yeah definitely missed the word "head" lol. Backing out stripped screws is fun.

Yeah, it was just the socket that stripped. Didn't help that the hex key was starting to get rounded. But I've got a pile of those, so used a fresh one to get the screw out. Just waiting on the replacements from TCSS now.

It was the emitter I got for my custom Obi-Wan -

Which BTW, I'm getting ready to replace the switch section, so I'll be updating that soon.
