Default Re: WD earth post thread size, ?.

They are 2BA, although they are often described as M5 which is close. The threads are similar in that an M5 nut will fit a 2BA thread but a bit loose.
If you wish to be completely metric then a short length of M5 stud and various M5 nuts/washers/lockwashers will do the job.
I just stick with the provided item and fit 2BA nuts etc.
