LOL It's a minor thing but it's so sad that we cannot get parts like the old days (wow! I am old!). TIA
From the sounds of it she has not a clue of what they have in stock. Did you find the section with the parts drawers. They are about 12 x 12 inches and stacked. They hold special parts like wing nuts, lamp parts, carbon brushes, C-clips, hairpin clips, roll pins and a lot of unusual parts. It would be in the hardware section. As far as I know they all stock them. Don Smith send me the size and I will find them.
