I have reached my limit trying to find metric hardware here in the US. This is a joke having to do hours of research to try to find a rod, screw,or nut. Can you guys in the UK, and other countries just run down to the LHS, or the hardware store and buy a 1.6mm screw or a 1.8mm rod if you need it. Does your LHS carry mteric piano wire like ours carry sae?

metric drill rod

I have bought metric drill rod from http://www.toolanddie.com

http://www.toolanddie.com/~smgr2/Me...gory_Code=TLKDR

But pay attention to the tolerances specified, it could be slightly oversize and not fit easily through a ball bearing, for example.

Hope it helps.

Try finding imperial 3/16 allen keys and bolts and stuff for your PMP kit when your in the UK. Then you know what sort of a nightmare we have to endure.
