Why are you even trying to use the BS SCREWS? Just use any that work. And as far as that goes, there is nothing sacred about drilling out the truck mounting holes to a more useful size.

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.
