What bolts are used to fasten the back buildplate clamps?

Posted · What bolts are used to fasten the back buildplate clamps?

I have an UM2 extended that someone did modifications to. I am trying to revert the build plate back to the way it was and noticed the screws for the build plate clamps on the back two corners were missing when I purchased it years ago. 
I believe the UM2 guide for replacing clamps says they are lock nut and bolts.... but I cannot tell what size I am meant to purchase. Would anyone know?

    Hi @Speckles,


    The screw used here is: 4 each 3 mm (diameter) X 8 mm (length) countersunk hex type (may also use Philips type).

    The nut to be used: 4 each  3mm with nylon lock type.

    I'm using SS (stainless steel) here..


    The link to the assembly manual is here:
