View Full Version : Pentax Digital Spotmeter Screw Size
Any chance that a forum member might happen to know the size of the screws that hold the ASA dial ring in place? There are 3 screws there and I'm now down to 1- the little buggers keep falling out and I keep forgetting my vow to use Lok-tite on them.
Size? Small! :) I've got and always have the same problem!
I believe, to the best of my recollection, that they are 4-40 flat head (I could be wrong). Most hardware stores carry a selection of miniature screws and will have what you need.
Another place to check would be a gunsmith.
I'm glad I don't have any screws loose. ;-)
I got the exact same problem. I have just been using mine without. But if somebody finds it please fill me in.
me too! i just do not use the dial anymore. the little arrow lines up wit hthe correct film speed. just pay close attention and it becomes very easy.
Call Richard Ritter or send him an email ... he repairs them.
thanks all- with this info Im sure I can get things to the point where Im the only loose screw hanging around my camera bag

I had similar screw losses -- I wrote Pentax Imaging, and their reply was to call their Repair Parts Department at (800) 877-0155. Ultimately, they sent me several of the screws free of charge.
