Default Amiga 3000 Screws?

As the heads of all of them are stripped on my machine, does anyone know the size of the screws used for the rear of the A3000 and floppy/hard drive cradles?

I know I could probably take one into the local hardware shop and do some basic searching, but if someone has already done so, there't no need to reinvent the wheel

Thanks.

The case screws are #8-32.

The #6-32 are sometimes used for mounting Hard drives, floppies, and other misc items.

Thanks for the info! My A3000 came with no exterior case screws! Perhaps I can finally get that case together!
