Default Screw size??

Screw size??

Hi, just a simple and quick question..

When the manual says to use a 10mm screw...

The 10mm, does it include the head of the screw or just the body of the screw.

The head is not typically included in the length specification.

Machine screw length is from bottom of head to tip of screw EXCEPT for countersunk screws where it's measured from the top of the head.
