Default Wire terminal source needed

I'm looking for a source for old style brass wire ring terminals. I know Hit and Miss and Starbolt have the big ones for sparkplugs, but I'm looking for little ones to put on timer wires. I checked McMaster Carr and came up empty. I did a Yahoo search and kept finding one company in India that manufactures various wire terminals. I've used the aluminum ones you can buy at the hardware store on a couple of engines now and just don't care for the look even with the plastic insulation pulled off. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks, Mike

Mike, I have had good luck with terminals bought at local supply houses that look to be aluminum but are really just coated, I remove the plastic insulator and give them a shot with the bead blaster and walla they are a dull brass underneath!
