...I know these are just plain ol' rough thread screws that thread into plastic, but I cannot seem to remove them without stripping them. All of the screws on all 4 of my xBs are stripped and damn near impossible to remove.

Anyone know the thread size/pitch? Or really, mainly looking for core diameter of the screw, not the OD of the threads. Anyone know?

I searched, but couldn't find a similar topic. I'm likely in the minority here, but would like to find this info out if possible. For OCD reasons.

I'm also contemplating using a allen key head as opposed to Phillips if they make anything like that. Or even a hex head. The angle of the screws don't work well with Phillips heads whatsoever.

I ended up just grabbing a few different sizes from the local hardware store and it worked. I knew it was a dumb thread that I started when I made it, apologies... :D
