    Sense I tray to find some shops for these articles for some time,maybe is a good idea to put here some of the well known places for buying.

    Actually I need to buy a couple of:

    Simmering with:Interior Diameter 3mm,
    Outside Diameter 12-15mm/MAX
    Thickness 5-6mm/MAX,

    and some O-rings:Interior Diameter 70mm
    Crossed Section 3.5-4mm

    Hi Marius,

    We can get them locally in the UK (Oil seal and bearing suppliers.)

    If you are having problems can you not order them by post from Germany, say?

    Unfortunately NOBODY brings in My country such small items and so few.I get 4 emails with the same response from all of them.

    Regarding to order by INTERNET,for me is virtually IMPOSSIBLE (I don't have any bank account and from here NO credit card at any bank!).

    All I can do is to seek from time to time a friend and ask him to help me!.

    In Germany do You know any store ho sell these items?...or even in UK (they sell to abroad?).
