Or if you work in a shop of some sort they should have some to spare.
I was thinking to grind down the screws. It's a bit difficult to measure but I'll go to Gregg Distributions here in town, they seem to have a very wide selection. I'm sure if I take the long ones with me as a reference I can get the exact length I need. Thanks!
