Rubber Grommets

I need one 1/4" OD, ID negotiable to whatever diameter of aluminum shaft I can find.  But online, grommets seem to come in packs of 100.  Any suggestions where I might find just one locally?

Well Home Depot, Lowes, Ace, D&B all have drawer bins with grommets.

If you have a Menard's near you, I've found they have one or two packs of things like taps, while elsewhere they're bulk buys. Here's the web link for their rubber grommet listing:

A really good hardware store MIGHT sell you a one-off.

Equally, a car-parts store might be able to find one of an appropriate OD.

Menards carries a large assortment. SOmetimes Home Depot as well.

Also ACE or, if you have one, an independant Auto parts store.

Most all good hardware stores will have a rack of drawers with specialty hardware in small bags. Size of item tends to be the determiner of quantity contained. Typically less than $2/bag, until you get to stuff like bearings. Home Depot, Lowes, Ace, etc.

Hardware store.

Will an O-ring work? Ace hardware stocks all sorts of sizes.

Lowes or Home Depot

Too bad there are no more Radio Shacks...they used to have them, at least in small bags
