Try a hobby shop.  They have sizes down to 00-90

These screws are much smaller than #6, and I tried known #4-40
which are also too large.  Some known #2 screws fit but I don't 
know for sure the threads per inch.  I suspect, as stated below,
they are #2-56.  My usual solution to this kind of problem is 
to take one fastener to Ace Hardware for a match but I'm not
sure they carry #2 size.
