Pinebook Pro Screw Sizes???
#1
Exclamation 
Does anyone have definite screw sizes for the Pinebook Pro? I would really like them sooner rather then later because I have already lost two screws from the bottom of my PBP! (it is my fault because I didn't screw them back in all the way after reassembling it...) Would a kit like this: https://www.amazon.com/CO-RODE-Notebook-...crew+kit&a qid=1581169631&sr=8-8 have screws close to the ones in the PBP? Any help is appreciated!

Just broke out the Mitutoyo Calipers and took a couple screws out

All measurements in mm

Small screw:

Head - 3.44
Shaft - 1.97
Thread length - 2.1
Overall length - 3.05

Big screw:

Head - 3.44
Shaft - 1.97
Thread length - 4.41
Overall length - 5.85


Hope that helps.... I wouldn't think they'd need to be exactly that size but as close as possible

Thanks sooo much for your prompt reply! Could you post a link to a reputable site (like Amazon) that sells these specific screws?

Better still perhaps if there are black (Japanned?) screw sets available - that would really look better (in my humble opinion) Smile

I'm not positive how they are measuring the screws on this one. but if they're doing overall length, 2x3 and 2x6 would work

I'm pretty sure those would be a disaster. Ya know, the whole coarse thread screw into a fine thread hole..... But if ya want to try.....

ebay link of some I think might work and they're black

Thanks or measuring these! Have you had the opportunity to add them to the wiki?

 Hmmm....

   Wonder if the thread "pitch" would come into play ? 
     or
   Perhaps at that small of size,  there may only be one pitch available...  ?

I haven't ever added anything to a wiki page but I can sure give it a try in a little bit.


As far as the pitch of the thread goes, it absolutely matters. If you try and put a course thread screw in a fine thread hole, you'll most likely break the plastic.

I broke out the tap and die set for the first time in 15 or so years and pulled out the gauge. When there are this small, it's hard for me to really tell. I'm going to guess from the blown up pic its a 0.6 but could also be a 0.5
