The TP screws are just generic M2.5 screws I think so get a few in a bunch of sizes and mix and match. I can find the exact screw type in the morning.
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

There's a seller on Fleabay that sells screw sets for the entire machine. No telling if he has a set for yours, but do a search. I can't remember who the guy is, but I bought a complete set for a T500 for a few dollars.
