Hello!

I have 2 sets of Mirror blades for MBr and AFMr.
They did not come with screws.
What is the best screws to use? A YouTube video suggested 1/4” #4 flat head beveled..

Thanks!!

The screws that came with both sets of blades were to big to me. I used the same size as the ramp screws but I don't remember their size offhand.

Use ramp flap screws: #4 by 3/8" long or 1/2" long flat head screws.

Ok! I got #4 1/2” at the store. Should I pre drill a bit?

The wood is soft, but I usually pre drill just enough to break through the top black surface.

Yes, I use a 5/64" drill bit and drill to a depth of 3/8" in the wood.
