Does anyone know what is the screw size on the tip of a tripod stand that screws underneath the camera to hold it in place?

I am building a custom made camera stand and i need to mount the camera on that stand so need to know what size is that screw. Thanks

It should be a 1/4".

1/4 " X 20. The 20 is for the threads.

Thank you, do you know how long I should make the screw?

Stick a pencil into the female thread under the camera and then minus a few mm from the measurement

It is about 1/4", maybe a bit more.
