Apple //e Hex Screws

Hi all,

 

I am looking for 8 of those silver hex screws that one uses to mount connectors (e.g., mouse card's DB9) to the back of the Apple //e.

Does anyone have them and can part with a few, or know their spec?

 

Thanks,

 

Armando

If you have an old pc lying

If you have an old pc desktop lying around you can pilfer the screws from the com ports and use them. I have a couple of Dell Optiplex desktop cases that I took those screws from for my //e floppy connector.

Ebay also has them but brass. 5mm sounds like the correct size.

Cheers!

Hmm...

@Timelord, Maybe you can suggest where? 

...and if he only needs a couple of these, might it be worth It to get some from one of our members?

Fek. I heave a lot of these, but I do not know the metrics offhand. If the OP or anyone else still needs them, I will put a caliper on them and measure both the hex diameter and the thread diameter. The thread pitch is standard for its diameter.
