The wedge only lather catcher with the comb tray that comes up like a flap and it has the four screws, two to raise or lower the comb and two to move the blade front and back. Missing a blade location screw.

I have been experimenting. If this is a problem for you, eyeglass screws will work. You can file or cut the head and shape it to look like the original. Just see at your local eyeglass store what they have.
This is really great info. I thought it must be an old thread pattern and wasn't sure of the next step. You remained undaunted and now have a solution. A solution that would indeed help next time we run into one with a similar prob. On ebay too. Shhhhhhhh. : )
The threaded screws might not be original, but they also might be handy for experimenting with edge adjustment. I find the old screws cumbersome and have not fiddled a lot with fine adjustment of the blade as much as I would have liked on a few old wedge safety's that I have.. These would suffice nicely! Replace the originals in a shaver grade model and have fun. I think I might check out the idea.
