My development 5155 is currently without screws owing to a bunch of stuff having gone missing in a house move.

Therefore I need to know the specs of the screws, i.e. length and thread, so I can get some replacements. I think there are two types.

To be clear, the screws missing are those in the machine front panel in the recess around the edge that hold the entire rear case assembly onto the front bezel.

Many thanks!

I think I might have a few spare ones, it's those torx/flat screws, right?? (domed round head, torx with a slide in them for a flathead). I scrapped a 5155 a long time ago and kept some stuff (such as those screws and the floppy drive mounting plate etc).

I'm not at home much right now but I'll remember to check this week if I still have those or if my memory is playing me a "senior's moment" ;-)
