Hi Deck

M4 is the diam. and the thread size (in metric), the 16mm is the over all length from the top of the head to the bottom of the screw...(on a flat counter sunk type metric screw )
==============

But in the states it would be called out like 8-32 x 5/8" in SAE sizes.
8 is the diam.32 is the threads per. in. and the 5/8" is the over all length.

Screw sizes for all routers

I did not know where to put this so I thought it might go here:

Opening with basic notepad is probably best.This list states the base screw sizes for various routers. If anyone can add to the list or can make changes please do.

I was going nuts last night as I have so many routers and all had different screw sizes and I could not find a list all in one place. If this is in the forum already let me know where it is or where we can put something like this to be easily found.
