    Hi Clam71,
    That’s clever (padlock). I like it!

    As long as the screws that you need for the carriage clock don’t require a snug fit (like timing screws) then I don’t think I would be concerned about the screw being .003 smaller. The important thing would be the thread pitch. If you have another screw that you think is close you can remove one of the screws from the clock that you are trying to match and overlay them to see if the threads match. If they do and you’re only a few thousands different on the major diameter then it should work fine for you.
    Enjoy and keep having fun Clam!
