Ive had my snapmaker for a while now, but recently went through the left over items and noticed that i only had 3 M8 (short screws) left.
Ive not attached any of the other modules (laser, cnc).
Am i supposed to have three of them or two of them? Is there one extra?
Yes, I have three of the shorter m4 x 8mm screws leftover too. I believe those are for the clamps when doing CNC or laser engraving.
Have had a number of things that I’ve bought that require assembly, and it seems somewhat common to include extras of some screws/nuts in case there was a miscount. That way the customer is still able to assemble the machine. Also, with these very small allen heads, if the screw gets stripped by over-tightening, there is a replacement already available.
They’re too short for that. I think they’re simply spares. The longer M4 screws are definitely for the CNC/laser clamps.
