What are the screw sizes for the case?

It looks like the case has four screw holes and all the screws are missing. Mine is a sears tele-games console, but I think it's an exact clone of the 4-switch atari 2600. I'd like to know the screw sizes for the case so I can put this thing back together properly!

Update

Here are the exact screws I ended up using, in case anyone else needs the info. #6x3/4" from Lowes. Model #: 490198

Here you go, it's about 3/4 Inches long. I put it next to an SD card for reference.

I measured the screws on my 4-switch Woody and Vader.

The short answer is you need four screws of size #6-20 (aka #6) in length of 5/8”. Details below…

Quantity 2 #6-20, ¾” length screws are at front.

Quantity 2 #6-20, ⅝” length screws are angled at rear. They are installed at an angle, parallel with the silver switches.

I think you could use ⅝” long screws for all four locations but factory used longer ones up front.

Measured sizes to help folks convert to metric…

Diameter 0.136 inches

19.7 threads-per-inch

Length: 0.725 inches and 0.600 inches
