Kinda OT for s.e.d, except it's for holding a PCB into a case...
I'm using one of these-here cases for a product I'm designing:
They have little bosses inside for screws for the PCB, the bosses have
holes that are 2mm x 6mm (I know, I know, metric is for unpatriotic frog
lovers -- but that's how it's specified).
The cases come with screws to hold the halves together, but they're
leaving me on my own vis. what screws to hold the PCB in with. So --
what's the right screw for this hole?
The PCB is fairly light (no herky transformers, motors, etc.),
unstressed (no honkin' big wires or soldered-on switches), basically
just a board that gets bolted to a box.
So -- what screw to use? And how much penetration into the hole should
I plan for?
