    Hey guys -
    Need a quick check -

    What is the screw size used to hold the larger cherry switches(*) on to various assemblies in WPC games? These are NOT the ones on then small BA3 switches used on ramps and subways - they're slightly larger.

    (*) These are the larger switches like in the coin switches on the coin doors, and used in TZ (at least?) on the ball trough.

    I believe they are 4-40 by 3/4" long.

    Thanks! Figured they were #40, wasn't sure on the threading tho. I'll order some and give it a shot.

    Dear Forum,

    need your help. What is the screw size on this pic? Its belong to the hinge bracket of the playfield (sys11, WPC dot matrix family).
    I have to order some dose of it.

    Thanks

    I don't have one of those generation games to pull a screw out and check; however, that looks like a #8 or #10. For length, measure from the bottom of the head to the end of the screw.

    The parts in that pic look oversized from the close up nature of the pic. That looks like a #6 size to me. 6-32

    Quoted from cottonm4:

    It's definitely #8. You'll have to double check the length.
