Size of all the screws used?

I am trying to replace some stripped screws, I live in the UK so I need the correct dimensions for the Exterior, the Pak port screws and the Joystick screws and if possible the screw for the joystick itself that keeps the spring down. I cannot find any of this information online, I have tried to measure screws myself but I am not understanding exactly how to search the results to find what I need. These screws seem to be very easy to come by as someone is selling 50 piece packs of them although this person is based in America and I cannot justify the shipping costs. Here's their store for reference: https://mortoffgames.com/index.php?route...

Please if anyone could measure these who has actual knowledge of how to do that, it would be really helpful.

The screws used in the Nintendo 64 Controller vary in size depending on their location within the controller. Here are some general measurements for the screws commonly found in the N64 Controller:

  • Exterior screws: M3 x 8mm (machine screw)
  • Pak port screws: M2 x 5mm (machine screw)
  • Joystick screws: M1.6 x 4mm (machine screw)
  • Screw for the joystick spring: M1.4 x 3mm (machine screw)

Please note that these measurements are approximate and may vary slightly depending on the specific model and version of the controller. It is always best to double-check the measurements with a caliper or ruler before purchasing replacement screws.

Update (02/27/2023)

I apologize for the error in my previous response. Here are the correct measurements for the screws commonly found in the N64 Controller:

  1. Exterior screws: M2.6 x 10mm (machine screw) These screws are used on the exterior of the controller to hold the two halves of the controller together. They are machine screws with a diameter of 2.6mm and a length of 10mm.
  2. Pak port screws: M2 x 6mm (machine screw) These screws are used to hold the Pak port in place on the bottom of the controller. They are machine screws with a diameter of 2mm and a length of 6mm.
  3. Joystick screws: M1.6 x 6mm (machine screw) These screws are used to hold the joystick mechanism in place on the inside of the controller. They are machine screws with a diameter of 1.6mm and a length of 6mm.
  4. Screw for the joystick spring: M1.4 x 4mm (machine screw) This screw is used to hold the spring in place on the joystick mechanism. It is a machine screw with a diameter of 1.4mm and a length of 4mm.

Again, please note that these measurements are approximate and may vary slightly depending on the specific model and version of the controller. It is always best to double-check the measurements with a caliper or ruler before purchasing replacement screws to ensure compatibility with your controller

Thank you for the detailed response, I've taken your word on this and ordered some replacements of the ones most crucial that I need. I'll keep in mind about double checking measurements, the ones I've ordered weren't expensive so I'll find out if its the solution.

@bllett It sounds like you're looking for the size of screws for your Nintendo 64 Controller. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find this information online, but luckily there are some people who specialize in measuring screws and have experience doing so.

One option is to reach out to Mortoff Games (the website you linked) and ask if they could provide you with the exact measurements of their screws so that you can compare them against other options. Additionally, there are also a number of forums and communities dedicated to consoles and game repairs which may be able to provide helpful advice on how best to measure these screws.

Finally, if all else fails, it might be worth considering purchasing one of those 50-piece screw packs from Mortoff Games even with the high shipping costs as it would save you time compared with trying to find individual replacements elsewhere.

Just remember to measure it as my answer is just a search on the internet

Jelly Bean man's answer does not follow the standard screw callout format and has incorrect information even in the "corrected" edit.

You do not use the overall length when giving a screw size, you only use the threaded portion as the length. You also do not give the length after the major diameter, the number after the first x is the thread pitch.

The standard format for a metric screw callout is:

major diameter x thread pitch x threaded length

The screw sizes are as follows (units are mm):

  • Exterior screws: M2.5 x 1.12 x 8
  • Pak port screws: M2 x 0.89 x 8
  • Joystick screws: M2 x 0.89 x 6

*

The screw type is thread-forming for plastic, with a pan head philips drive.

Thanks for the correction, but the op comment showed the size for the single screw that holds the joystick spring, I wanted to know the accurate measurement for that but in you correction it isn't stated that. Could you tell me?
