Think this is a simple question...
XT and early AT cases had bigger thread size that newer AT and ATX cases which uses M3 size screws.
Does anyone know what size/thread it is? it's close to M4 screws but the thread is different so I suspect it's some "inch" screws...

The case screw used on the PC/XT/AT is an 8-32 UNC.

They were a bit unique. I have a few extra but am holding on to them!
I don't know about your part of the world but in the US this looks to be the type, part number 90316A192

I'll look around, I might find some before you go out and buy any.
