I'm trying to mount a Graflex solenoid to a wooden lensboard (4x4) to trip a shutter using the Graflex Graphlite. I think I got in over my head and could use some help.

The screws are very short so I assume they were originally for mounting the solenoid to a metal lensboard. I tried counterskinking but the holes pulled through when I tightened the screws. Now they wont tighten at all.

Does anyone know the size of these screws so I can try finding longer screws and washers so I can attach through the full thickness of the lensboard?

Thanks very much. If only I could have remembered how to read a vernier caliper.

Hobby shop (model railroad) or locally owned well-stocked hardware store.
