Help with Screw sizes needed!
Hello Knowledgeable folk of the DIY chatroom,
I am very confused at the moment as i'm from the UK and have a set of instructions from the USA for a project I am trying to copy but the screw sizing used is in the American format and don't seem to be available here or are called something different!
I am trying to find a UK equivalent of a 1/4″-20 x 3″ round head slotted machine screw (I only need 3!) and their associated jam nut however upon searching for machine screws in the UK, I get them listed in the format M2 x 20, M6 x 50, A2 x something etc. These mean little to me. There doesn't seem to be a metric equivalent.
Can anyone here tell me what the screw I want is called in the UK (metric) format?
I would be very grateful.
