I have been replacing the frame screws on my 200,300, & 500 Newells with Stainless Steel Socket Head Screws.
The #5-40 1/4, 5/8 & 3/4 Flat Socket Head Screws seems to be perfect for the job.

For the next upgrade, I would like to replace the bridge screws with Socket Head Screws as well.
Does anyone know what is the thread pitch of the bridge screws?

The diameter of the original screw was measured to be 0.135".
and the thread pitch seems to match well with the #5-40 screws.

It seems that I should be able to replace them with these #6-40 screws.

Thank you!
