HMM, the standard size #4 machine screw is 4-40.  This is the size of  
the set screws in the knobs.  a good source for machine screws is  
mcmaster-carr.  You can get nice stainless screws in useable  
quantities: 10, 25, and I usually buy boxes of 100 because I tend to  
use a lot of machine screws in my work.  They even have the sought  
after 1/4-28 stainless truss-headed phillips machine screws used to  
mount the fender.
