In any case, the first batch of VIC/C64 breadboxes was released many years 
earlier... :-)

To make the subject a bit broader, sometimes it can be hard to find matching 
screws for the PET series as well as CBM-II cases, dual floppy drives etc 
too. Those screws tend to be rather thick and long, and quite difficult to 
find a perfect match even in a well sorted hardware store. I found a type of 
screw that holds a CBM610 closed quite well, but I've had far less luck 
finding screws for a PET/CBM 2001N/3000.

Maybe there is a CBM hardware wiki somewhere where even "nonsense" details 
like these would belong? Of course the selection depends where in the world 
one lives, and it got to be a near perfect match in order to ship individual 
screws around the world.

Best regards
