I'm trying to fix my 1956 screw terminal switch which has two terminals with twisted off screws in them I have re drilled the old broken screws out but need help determining the size of tap/drill I will need to restore the threads.
Any help would be great
Thanks!
Bruce

There should be two other screw terminals in the switch. They may be the same size. Often, a good hardware shop has screws and nuts you can test fit to determine the size. Most likely metric.
