Anyone Know Where I Can Get Some M0.8 or M1 Steel Washers in a Hurry?

I am having trouble getting some M.8 and/or M1 (0.8/1mm metric washers) in steel. I need them to be either plain steel or 15-5, 17-4, or 17-7 stainless steel. They cannot be 301, 302, 304, 316, or 18-8 stainless steel. Basically I need these to be very magnetic. I am in a bit of a hurry. I have been trying to source these things, and each group that I have tried to go to that say they have them in stock, end up not having them. I have been trying to get them for a few weeks now. I am looking to get about 20 of them. It has gotten a bit more of a priority as I would like to show them to a good friend before he passes away. If I cannot find some, I will have to get some drill bits in the right size and make them on the lathe. If I cannot find some by this weekend, that is what I will do. Thanks for your help.

Lowes or Home Depot should have them. They have everything else that I have needed.

Thanks for the suggestion. I have checked there, and they do not have anything smaller than m4 in metric or #2 machine screw in the inch system.

So far I have looked at the following vendors:
McMaster
MSC
Smallparts/Amazon
Fastenal
DrillSpot
Grainger
Digikey
Mouser
Applied Industrial
Newark
Home Depot
Lowes
Ace

There are a few others, but I cannot remember their names right now.

What about 5/16" washers?

5/16" = .312"
8mm = .314"


Call Metric and Multistandard

OR
Maryland Metrics

Thunderguts,

I will check out your link. Though, I wish that it was as easy a getting a washer that large. Unfortunately, I need something in the .031-.050 range for what I am trying to do.
