The four options translate to:

DIN 74A -- ordinary metal screws (90 degree)

DIN 74B -- hex-head (Allen, Imbus) head screws (90 degree but slightly

DIN 74C -- self-tapping screws (not sure, need to get to library)

DIN 661 -- rivets (have a significantly different angle, 75 degrees)

My initial hunting on the web did not produce too much information,
other than translations of the Schaeffer german text (via babel) and a
few vague details on the net.

If anyone has access to the DIN specs and can confirm this it would be
much appreciated!  Otherwise I couldn't quite justify to myself the cost
of buying the DIN standards :-(

Hope this helps,
