Dave Marsh said:You are right I reckon - I did consider torx screws a while back, but can't
remember exactly why I dismissed them now... In a perfect world I'd still
prefer a totally "clean" front panel though, especially on such a small
front panel as this one.
Look in particular for "button head" cap screws. If you're in the US,
and don't have a nearby well-stocked hardware store,
I can highly recommend buying this sort of stuff from MSC...
I think they're available in Torx but IMHO the Allen socket head or
one of the tamper-resistant two-hole designs is better for a front panel.
You don't say what else is on your front panel but if there's any switches,
pots etc. with threaded shafts, D-sub connectors, etc., these can be used for
both standing off *and* mounting. If you look at the catalogs you'll see
a couple of semi-standards for mounting depth.
