Default Anyone have an extra 5/8 SS fender washer?

Yes, I looked everywhere and can't get the Boo Radley of brewing parts: the 5/8 SS fender washer.

If anyone has one or even two and would sell them to me, let me know.

Or is there an online retailer I can buy one from, not any entire box!

There's another thread here that deals with this.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=49726

I got a 1/2" stainless fender washer from the lowes and just widened the hole to fit. It did the job for me.

I thought about doing that, except I couldn't find one after reading they were available. What I did find was a 1/2 nylon washer and am going to posted to get some feedback on using that after drilling it out?

I also bought a 1/2" SS washer and used my step bit to make it bigger. I clamped just the end in my vise at the 6 o'clock position and then used a pair of Vise grips at the 4 o'clock of the washer to keep it from wanting to rotate with the bit.

I had to look in every drawer that had the stainless steal washers in then I think they just thow the large ones anywhere as I found them with the lockwashers. I got the 1/2 and just used a rat tail file to make it fit.I'll take a look tonight to see if I have a leftover.
