Is there an industry, or builder standard for the threaded screw that attaches the dowel stick to the rim? Are most
hardware items fine thread (ie) shoe lug, tail piece mounting bolt.?

I'm not sure if you're referring to the endbolt or the screw in the dowel stick yoke. I think all the modern endbolts I have had were 10-24. I don't know what the thread pitch or name for the wood screw end of the hanger bolt is. For the dowel stick yoke I use 12-24 because I have those on hand for the shoes anyway and it's a fairly easy tap size to find. I think commercial ones are maybe more often 10, but I can't remember for sure.  I also like to use roll pins for the pin that goes through the dowel stick, but I am a little odd.

Yes, usually the yoke comes as an assembly I have found. My main question was of the end bolt, through the rim opposite the neck,. Thanks
