Size of screws for fixing cube2.1 to mini carrier board?

(Chris Gough) #1

What size screws to use for fixing a cube2.1 to a mini carrier board?

When I recieved my cube2.1 and mini carrier board (one of these from Bask Aerospace, a Proficnc reseller), they did not come with screws for fixing the board to the cube. I need to source some, but do not know what size to buy.

I can see from the docs of the full size carrier board that it uses M1.6*20mm screws. I can not see if, with the full size carrier, if the screws are going through case+PCB (and are therefore longer than they need to be for the mini carrier board) or if it’s the same as the mini carrier board, directly fixing the PCB to the cube2.1

It would be better if it had come with these screws included :frowning:

please contact Bask, they should be able to help you.

they are a M1.6 machine screw, stainless steel

the minicarrier boards to date were the initial Beta Batch, the next batch will come with case etc.

10mm to 16mm will be fine for length

thanks, I think I can get 10mm locally.

just for future reference: 20mm * 1.6 also seems to work fine for attaching the mini carrier board.

Kind of a shame that these screws are not included with the purchases of cubes/mini carrier boards at the moment.
