Own metric screws? The 3.5 mm size or the metric system that is the one not standard? The stock Philips countersunk self tapping screws are normally 3.5 mm. I think it's pretty standard. Well, I think the lightened aluminum screws only come in 4 mm if I'm not mistaken.

Most metric kits use M3 screws not 3.5mm. I think this is what he means.

Ummm, I have not come across M3 self tapping screws. Almost all the time they are M3.5.
