Default stripped diptube bolt

So, I was gearing up to brew my first batch in about a year this morning only to discover that the little bolt that you loosen to turn the dip tube (talking about a blichmann) to remove/install the false bottom was rounded out!
Any suggestions? I'd like to just get a new one at a hardware store but didn't know if it was some special size, necessitating buying it from Blichmann which I assume would be expensive.
Also, does anyone know what size hex key it takes, the one that fit best, but spun, seemed like it could've been a little small, but the next one up was too big...
Thanks for any help!
matt
