 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I've just received the great Arduino Starter Kit... It's almost perfect. I say almost because it seems to me that the kit is missing the three screws described in the manual to fix the Arduino board to the wooden base.
Am I missing something or is the kit that's missing them?

Thank you

Exactly, I confirm they are inside the electronic components box.

Happy making to everyone!!!

Ups, I didn't see them, they are there. My fault (soooo many things in the kit!)

In my case, I found them in the "electronic components" box

I found three screws and three nuts in the "electronic components" box.

The screws fit the holes in the base, but they are a bit longer than needed and unlike the illustrations in the starter kit's manual, the screws have a Phillipps type (crosses) head ..

but they fit/work to attach the Arduino to the base...

my quest is done!

I searched my house and garage for about an hour for three suitable screws.

After finding 2 and thinking "close enough, let's move on", I opened the electronic components box  smiley-red smiley-red smiley-red

One of the nuts isn't threaded inside so I've had to make do with 2 anyway (better than using one of the mucky old ones I had made do with!).

For anybody else who finds the screws to be too long: Simply screw them in from the bottom.

Was stumped by this as well.
I think it'd be great if the tutorial hinted at the screws' location.
