    Default Where do you find small washers for pinning?!

    I need to find small brass washers with an inner dimension of around 1/16" for the pinning part of the restoration. I have checked every hardware store and even online and can't find anything. Any help?

    I found a guy on eBay that sold them and the rods(pins) as a kit. I think if you type in straight razor pins you might find them. That's what I did and a whole page came up of them, good luck:-)
    If you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything.

    In a pinch one day (waiting for rod to come in the mail) I used my sons little car. It had a 5/32 rod and two washers ripe for the taking with minimal damage to both rod and washers. Just saying sometimes you have to be creative. An no he did not miss the car one bit.
