Go to sewing store and buy some cheap metal sewing machine bobbins. Same general shape and they will never break.

One of the Ace Hardware stores in my area has an unbelievable selection of rare hardware. It even has rubber stoppers for old-style test tubes, of all things. They might have something along those lines.

There's also this product, which is described as, "The retainer that holds the cord for conversion van blinds." But it is plastic.

$5.99! Last time I bought sewing machine bobbins they were $.85 if I recall correctly and they last forever. You can even pick the colors.

We had a great hardware store here in Austin, called "Breeds." They had the things you couldn't find elsewhere. Last time I was in they had morphed into pretty much a typical Ace hardware. When I commented, they told me that virtually all of their suppliers had gone out of business and they could not get supplies for more than the high-volume stuff.

Best hardware stores I have ever found were McGuckins in Boulder, CO and Bible hardware in Abilene, TX.

Pick and Shovel is a PHENOMENAL hardware store if ever near Newport Vermont! We have a great one near us, but I have never seen a HW store like this one!
