i was wondering since i can't get any ss 5/8ths fender washers if anyone sees a issue with me buying a 1/2 ss fender washer and using a drill to make it fit.

If you go to home depot, there is an orange clear package called "Create-A-Bolt". It has 5/8 ss washers and some nuts and lock washers. I was 4 of each but only cost $4. If you can't find that I would think you should be able to drill it out though.

Fastenal carries the washers, both online and in their stores.

I picked up a 10 pack of 5/8 Stainless flat washers, for $8.40

Home page http://www.fastenal.com/web/home.ex They have a store loactor on their page.

The stores are awsome by the way.

I posted in another thread but I'll repost here... If you're really hard up for a stainless steel 5/8" washer, PM me and I'll pick one up for you and mail it to you next time I'm at ACE Hardware. I don't remember how much they were, but I'm thinking $2 including postage will probably cover it.

Great! There's a fastenal near me. Several stores in the area, in fact. And, best of all, they have the MC300 series moldmate-compatible Tomco brand brass 3/8th body by 1/2" barb quick disconnects that many of us have been ordering from McMaster Carr. And the price is about the same.
