OK. Thanks TJ. I will check out Sears here for the black washers. Thanks
for the complete description and photo.

Well, these are not what I call the "good" ones. I have some that actually
resemble a real nut attached to the spring steel clip. And, I have some
that are all one piece but catch about 5 threads on the screw instead of
the one thread caught by the tinnerman clips in your photo. BUT, they are
all 10/32. I have nothing for 8/32. However, the good news is that I think
I can get you more of the ones like in your photo. They sell those at a
hardware store not too far from my place. How many and what size are you
looking for?

P.S. Just returned from seeing the Moody Blues in concert. Very nice.
