Who out there knows anything about screwing!?!
« on: February 20, 2022, 05:34:01 PM »
EASTERN ELECTRIC Minimax DAC: I need to buy a set of replacement screws for the top plate. Does anyone know what the size and thread specs are? Any info. on this would be greatly appreciated. - TIA

Number two son is using my EE Dac right now, but if you can't find any information about the screws I will ask him to pull one out and then you can take it to a hardware store and match it up.

I would eyeball the dac screw holes for size, go to Home Depot or a local hardware store, and pick up 4 or 5 different machine screw sizes. To narrow the search, I’d be 99% sure they’re going to be metric, as it’s made overseas. It’ll cost under a buck for all.
As an aside, just be careful of the length, in case a too-long screw may touch a wire or some other internal component inside the case.
Godspeed in your quest Bill.

  Possibly metric screws. Sounds better with top off BTW.

Mpst of the metric chassis cover screws I have seen are either 2mm (~3/31") or 2.5mm (~1/8") in diameter.
