What is the recommended screw size for this pad eye?
Either a number 8 or 10 Phillips head , have both available as countetsink machining may vary.
I can't remember what "size" I used but I can tell you what I did. I took an eye to my local nut and bolt supply and and found the largest countersunk phillips head brass screw that perfectly fit the countersink holes in the pad eyes and measured the length that wouldn't go through the wood I was attaching them to and got the size. Then I went online and ordered that size in Silicon Bronze. Don't trust brass exposed to the weather they will fail under load. The eyes are fine in brass but not screws unless they are totally out of the weather.
I used a #8 flat head but had to drill it out a bit. A #6 seemed to small.
Is the quantity for this product one or one pair (two)?Price says "$6.24 / pr"
Two (2) eyes!
What dimensions are provided? I need center to center dimensions for the mounting holes... Both vertical and horizontal

The machining could have been more precise; hole locations were not centered real well and thickness of flanges was inconsistent, but I'm probably being a little too picky. They will perform their intended purpose just fine.
Several of these are installed on a driftboat I'm building as lashing points. They look great and are very well made.
Cast, polished and ready to go
All in all, a good, sturdy product; however, if there is intent to inlet the base into a wooden surface, to have its bases reverse beveled would greatly ease the job of inletting and make the overall appearance of the project much more professional. Beveling the bases would be much better done during manufacture.
