CF-33 Replacement Screw size

Post all questions and information about the CF-33 in here. (Yes, Panasonic skipped the "CF-32 model" and went straight to CF-33 just to be a pain...)

CF-33 Replacement Screw size

#1 Post by nmbushek »

Gents,

So I pulled apart my CF-33 to fix the antenna connections and found that the last time Heartland was inside this rig, about a year ago and while still under warranty, they forgot/lost one of the screws that secures the Back Upper cover.

Not sure what screw size this is and if anyone could assist, it would be very much appreciated.

Below is a pic of a similar screw and where it is missing from:

Thanks in advance.

That is an odd one for a Toughbook.
Go to a good old fashioned hardware store. They can match the threads.

Hey Shawn,

Thanks for the idea.

And yes, I agree it is an odd one. However since I am so very familiar, like you are, with the 28s-31s almost everything on this 33 is a little "odd" in my opinion...lol

Thanks again and have a great evening.
