need some rack bolts, according to techie there not quite standard, the racks are weird ones for the edge switches that only have the fronts and don't take cage nuts the thread is built in.
anyways, are these kind of things easy to get retail. ie. shop rather than waiting for internet order? thinking we might be able to compare the few we have if we see them in person,

Might be an m5 thread. You could try a hardware store, maybe b&q, wickes or similar. Normal rack bolts in the uk are m6 i think, m5 should be about 1mm thinner. Wilkinson's might be worth a look as well, although their range isn't as wide.

cheers, probably just go an buy a pack of both and see what works.
techie seemed to reckon that he had some (would be m6) that fitted in normal cage nuts but not this rack, unless its the thread pitch..
they are probably just m5 or m5.5
