    I'm pretty sure they're a #8, but careful on length - you don't want them poking up too high

    To be accurate they are 8-32 machine screws. Depending on the height of the feet, choose a screw length that is just enough to go into the captive nuts on the inside of the chassis bottom cover. Don't get screws that will go a long way into the chassis as you might wind up shorting something out.

    Sorry for not being accurate, escorial. Joe has it right 8-32 and not too long.

    You can always get a little longer, install the feet on the plate then leave a 1/8" stub, by using a dremel with a cutoff wheel. I usually get 1-1/4" length and cut them off due to differences in foot size.

    If the screws are a bit long, you can also pad them with washers under the bottom plate. This will have the advantage of making the unit sit slightly higher, increasing air space underneath.
