[rescue] looking for a source for flat (countersunk) hard drive mounting screws

I've rescued a number of pieces of hardware from the recycler... looks
like all of it uses
6-32 machine screws with flat (countersunk) head screws (phillips I'm sure).
As best as I can tell these are 100 degree. The tricky part is that all
the hardware sites
I've found on the net that give dimensions for these 3/16" long
(probably can use 1/4" length
ok) screws show a larger head diameter than what these will take. I've
got some screws
from Dell boxes... and they fit... but the head is larger/deeper, and so
the screw head
sticks out enough to bind.
I'd like to locate 180+ of these.... but so far I can't locate them.
(all the drives were removed from the equipment, thankfully the sleds
installed..... but all the scews are gone).
