when I need specific nuts/bolts, even SAE ones, I skip the box stores and hit up the local hardware store. the one I go to used to be an ACE but have split off and is independent now. the fastener aisle is about 75 feet long, both sides, pretty much everything below 60 inches from floor is drawers of stuff (well organized I might add), and packaged product above that. also the fasteners continue around the corner and halfway down one side of the next aisle.
it pays to keep them stores around, they are important and valuable resources!
as an example, I walked in with a fastener (forgot what it was exactly, was a couple years ago), I showed it to them, they literally walked up to the drawer and pulled one out. and it was one I had no hope of finding locally, it was something weird/bizzare
