Confirmed from Blackstone direct: truck screws are 1.7mm x 0.35 mm pitch, total length 5.3 mm (only last 2.4 mm of the screw is threadsed.)
Metric taps were easier and cheaper on Amazon than the American taps, oddly enough. I'll order a 1.4 and a 1.7 mm tap anyway.

But there again I have metric taps - 1.4 and 1.7 are the most common. I would NOT attempt to force the screw into a wrong tap especially in 3D printer models.
