      Screws to Secure WPC Circuit Boards....

      I am just placing an order for various parts from the usual suspects stores (PSA & RTBB) and wanted to order some screws used to secure the circuit boards in a couple of my machines which have the odd screw missing but I am at work so cant measure what screws they are....

      Anyone know off the top of their heads???

      #6 x 1/4" is used in PC cases to hold the sides on amongst other things:

      I have tons of them scavenged from old PCs.

      System 11 do use #8 . I don't know about wpc. Simple test to grab PC Case screw, If it works it's #6 and if it just slides in, it should be a #8 .
