where to get small hardware; m2, m2.5 ?

I am looking for metricv m2 and m2.5 hex bolts.
Also locknuts m2 and 2.5
I am looking for a box of 100 of a few sizes or so for a reasonable price.
Also does anyone know where i can get flanged ball bearing inside hole 2 mm?
I have a few helies with links that just rotate around a bolt with all the play that couses and drilling out the hole and inserting a ball bearing would be a relative simple way to get rid of some play.
Again not just 1 or 2 ; more 25 or more at a good price.

Yeah $7.50
But they had the 2x30 that I have not found anywhere else, and I used my last jesus bolt. So I bite the bullet and decided to give them a try. See if they are as fast as rtl...

Spidi, When you get the metal base plate, you need 7 of the 30mm bolts. See if you can add more to your order. I'll send you 10 bucks for 10 i fyou can get more. You should be able to mail in small yellow bubble envelope for 1-2 bucks.
