    I need the thickness adjustment screw for a #4 Montgomery Ward separator. At least a picture of one. Thanks

    This one appears to use an Allen head cap screw:

    I suspect it will have fine threads.

    It's possible you could use a wooden dowel that is just large enough to LIGHTLY turn into the threads to make an impression to compare.

    It wouldn't need to cut deeply.
    It just needs to be tight enough to make marks on the dowel.
    Work it in gradually by going in and out, and going slightly deeper each time until you have .25" of threads marked and measure from there to determine Threads Per Inch. It will also give you a good idea of the proper diameter.
