I've just bought an mSATA drive, but it didn't come with any screws :-(

 

Does anybody have a few spare, or know where I could source them? From the interweb it looks like they should be M2 x 3 or 4, or M1.6.

anzor fastners? - don't seem to have

 

PBTech - those screws are much larger than I need. an mSATA drive has TINT screws!

 

Hopefully sourced some but won't know for sure until I have tested them.

Last time I needed screws, I went to my local computer place and fosicked through their bin of leftovers.

Yep - any PC store with a service facility such as PBTech must have a bin of them.

I have seen at Wellington Pbtech had a box of free screws, just random ones.  Jaycar do sell them though if more convenient

Thanks all. It seems ALL THE SCREWS are in Wellington :-)

 

I dropped by the local PC store (I'm not in Wellington) and got the smallest screws they had, which I think are M2. They are too big, so I'm picking up some smaller ones tonight...hoping for the right thread etc.

Sorted thanks all. Thread can be closed.

 

Managed to source some that fit, with a bit of encouragement.
