    Default P10 Panels - Mounting screw size

    A quick "newbie" question.

    What is the size bolt needed for the threaded inserts in the P10 panel?

    I have seen a mention of using M3, but I wanted to double check.

    Thanks in advance.

    I used 3mm x 10mm with a .50 pitch for the ones I had at TASL meeting. I needed them that long to reach through the cutting board material. I guess the right answer would be 3mm with a .50 pitch and whatever length you needed. I got mine at Town & Country.

    FYI - Boscoyo Studio supplies plenty M3 screws with their P10 panel connectors.

    I ordered the M3 x 0.5 x 10mm screws and the 10mm is a bit long for the Boscoyo connectors. I ended up ordering some 8mm which are the size of the ones that come with the Boscoyo connectors.

    My connectors were home made and probably a bit thicker than the boscoyo ones. If you want I'll take some of those 10mm ones off your hands.
