Like the title.

Sorry for this obvious question, but I couldn't find any answers using search.

I assume you are asking about the 19A rack rails?
I was wondering this myself, just the other day... I don't know the answer.

I concur, MOTM uses 8-32 for the panel mounting. That is a machine screw for mounting to a metal rail.

I would use a wood screw or sheet metal screw for mounting to a wooden rail.

Yes, Septic and Bryan are correct! It's in the MOTM FAQ too! "The mounting holes are drilled for #8-32 screws" :tu:

This may be a cheaper option than getting them from the States: http://www.modelfixings.co.uk/unc_button_heads.htm . They're in the UK, good guys.

They are 8-32 x 3/8" Phillips pan head black oxide. Try Aaron's Hardware.
