    In a continuing sign of my bad luck this week, the quick release screw fell out while I was replacing the hot end in my Robo 3d R1 Plus. It hit my hand and bounced into the opening on the right of the printer. I have not been able to get it out. Can someone tell me the size of this screw so that I can replace it?

    Thanks.

    M3 or M4, sorry I can't be more specific... I don't have one to look at.
    @Geof has a + machine :)

    The price of those screws went up on Amazon since I bought them a few months ago. Back then they were under $10 with free shipping for 10 pieces. Nobody has this type of screw locally, although Lowe's has a very short version (not 50MM like these).
