What Size Screw?

I just dropped (and, it seems, lost forever) the screw of the battery compartment. A case screw from inside the battery compartment is presently doing the job so I am in no particular trouble but I should prefer to have a full complement of case screws.

Does anyone happen to know what size it is? It looks like a 3mm M1 but it would be nice to know fershure before ordering some.

ηὕρηκα!

Actually it was not I but Mistoffelees the cat who found it.

But my Cybook again has screws in all its holes.

And I'm still curious about what size it actually is.

Why not take the screw down to your local hardware store and see if they can match it?

Small Screws

Because my local hardware store has nothing that small by an order of magnitude. We are talking seriously small here. About this size:- T

I am sure that if I go to a specialist fastener supplier when I am next in a big town I shall have no trouble at all matching it, but if I am to order a minimum quantity by mail order I'll probably have to buy a hundred or so, and therefore do wish to make sure I order the right sort.

(Somebody had to say it)
But one might equally say, don't you think, that, provided it fits in, a screw of even the wrong size is better than no screw at all?
