Source for VERY small eyebolts

In the parts drawer where I keep things like miniature nails and eyebolts, I
found some that I need to get more of. I've
repackaged them so I have absolutely no information about the original
source, but here's the vital statistics:
OD: ~.040"
ID: ~.027"
Length: .175"
They're loose, not on a sprue and bright and shiny and aren't affected by
Birchwood-Casey's Aluminum Black or Soft-Solder Black so I assume they're
probably
steel.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
TIA
Norm

Norm,
Without a photo and reference it's hard to be sure but they may be the little eyelet screws that are used for fishing lures. Available at any fine tackle shop. -- Ray

Maybe Details Associate formed wire eyebolts? Not exactly sure of the dimensions - the Walthers Catalog page was not much help:

Not sure without a picture either but the wood model ship guys use these also. You can try:
modelexpo-online.com and search on the word "eyebolt" There are several different configurations available there. (:>

Try Model Expo or other model ship suppliers. My other hobby is building scale model plank on bulkhead wooden sailing ships and there are a lot of scratch builders suppliers out there on the web if not a store near you. Small parts are what we use.

I have bought the smallest ME sells, and they are still larger than the original poster mentioned.

While I can't be sure either, they look exactly like the ones I have so I'll check them out. Also, it's a brand that my favorite hobby shop carries so that's quite plausible. Norm

I have pack of something similar that appear to measure OD 1.4mm, ID 0.6mm and about 4.3mm long which converts roughly to 0.055", 0.024" and 0.172" (if I'm calculating correctly), so are quite close to what you mention. Made by Detail Associates, Part No : SY 2206 and called "Eye Bolt, Wire Formed". One thing, I'm not sure of how accurate my measurements are, these things *are* tiny.

That is indeed the right part. I found some more at the hobby shop today. They also make a longer shank version (5/16") which is part number 2222. Norm
