Sadly I have managed to lose one of the socket screws holding on the casing of my F1-X (fell under the floorboards while I had the cover off to change the jumper settings).
Does anyone know what the replacement screws would be (I'm not sure how you measure these things). They look like they are M3x5mm from looking on-line but it would be good to know for sure before ordering some replacements on-line.
Any help would be really kind.
Thanks very much

James. I can't give you the measurements but, as they've come from america I think it's unlikely they'll be metric screws. More likely UNF. Hopefully one of our transatlantic friends can chime in.

remove another screw from the unit & take to your local hardware store im sure they have exact replacements.

Non-metric buttonhead screws, 6-32, 1/4" length
James, email me your mailing address and I'll send you a couple - it's unlikely you'll find them at your local hardware store.

Hi Graeme / Barnes (love the bass on your profile pic btw, Barnes).
Thanks very much for the advice.
Hi Mica - thank you ever so much for that. I really appreciate it. I had spent some time today trawling around modelling shops and the like as they seem to stock similar things for radio-controlled cars as it happens (hardware stores in London hadn't anything), but you're correct - no joy with that exact size when I was matching another of the remaining screws with what I could find.
It's very kind of you to send me a couple - I'll drop you my address now.
Thanks again for all the help.

Just wanted to say thank you ever so much for having posted me a couple of replacement screws (and the allen key to tighten them up).
They arrived in the post yesterday.
I really appreciate it.
Many thanks again
