    Hi there! Sorry, I'm not very active on here. :)The metal plate is just the bottom of the enclosure that I happened to use. You could use anything made of any material. It doesn't have an important electrical function. I don't recall if it was connected to ground, but it isn't necessary to do so. Any machine screws (with corresponding nuts) that fit into the mounting holes on the Arduino will work.I don't have the project with me right now (these instructions are from over ten years ago) so I can't take pictures for you. The relevant drawings are in Step 2. Essentially the circuit is a voltage divider where one of the resistors (the FSR) is a variable resistor. The other is the fixed 10k pull down resistor. The audio cables and jacks in between are just to make it easy to connect and disc…

    Either will be fine!
