I didn't actively search for it, it was 'recommended' to me by YouTube's algorithms. But there was that discussion of screw types on the Jupiter 8 restoration thread, so it piqued my interest.

Sorry, I think I've lost the thread of this argument.

Far too much torque and not enough action methinks :smirk:

I think some people are losing the thread of the nuts and bolts of this discussion. Imperial or metric, concentrate now?

P.S. I’ve only joined this thread (unintentional pun) to get my ‘regular’ rating up to ‘Jedi’ so that I stand a chance of being PM’d to review gear like Mike Stranks has https://www.soundonsound.com/forum/view ... t=#p634692 :lol:

I think people commenting on this thread may have self-selected out of that particular threat! :D
