Bought the A1181 screw set, any way to measure screws?

Text:

Re: A1181 LCD replacement Guide

All the screws arrived in a little bag OK, but all mixed up.

Following the reassembly instructions I've tried to measure each screw (REALLY tedious). Especially for 2.2 type sizes (with tenths of a mm). Shank widths; thread depths; cap widths.

I've been using a printer's loupe and a transparent metric ruler. Also I feel my accuracy is in doubt. I don't want to goof up any threads or round out any Phillips' caps. Is there any method for speeding up tiny screw measurements? A Metal or paper guide?

Thank you,
