Yes that's the point, not every hardware store, big box or independent carries these things. It appears to be a regional thing. You may find it at "your " Lowe's or HD, but I couldn't find any at any store in my city, until I was sent to fastenal but the helpful manager of a big box hardware store. If it were so easy, this thread, nor about 1/3 of the Flyguy thread (lamenting the difficulty of finding them) would exist.....

Didn't mean to rub anybody the wrong way, was just trying to offer another option if they hadn't considered this yet. Apologies if I did.

I am confused. Is that directed to me?

I realize they are not at every HD or lowes. That Is why I said it was hit or miss.

Ahh. Gotcha.

Sometimes I am a bit slow on the uptake. But quick with the output.

Probably your best bet considering Home Depot is everywhere.
I looked this up at Home Depot and they were listed as zinc plated, not stainless steel.

Yeah, just about all the hardware stores in Porthuron carried 5/8 Zinc washers.

I cannot find a 5/8" stainless or non stainless fender washer or regular washer anywhere. No one carries them in my area. Home depot, lowes, ace hardware, all marine shops, auto shops, not a one of them. Super frustrated and I need one by saturday to do my first all grain brew. Anyone have one they want to sell?

And fastenall said they could order it but it's a case of 20 for $43.85
