I got the book and i am planning on doing the PSone Portable Project. I already got the electronic parts (were not that easy since radioshack appearantly doesn´t deliver to austria) but i am stumped when it comes to the relatively simple subject of buying the right screws. In the Book they are listed as e.g. Size 4 Screw, pan (round) philips, length: 1/4".
Converting the inches to mm is no big deal of course, but i haven´t been able to find the equivalent of a "size 4" (or other sizes for that matter) screw. In those stores i looked, screws were also labeled in mm concerning their size, not just their length.
I´ve been looking for conversion tables on the internet, but i haven´t been able to find something more useful than this one here:http://freespace.virgin.net/matt.waite/resource/handy/screwsize.htm
Does the "Size" in Heckendorn's Book refer to the "gauge", to the "BA Screwsize" or to something else entirely?
Thanks in advance for any useful clarifications on this matter.
