    I need gold and silver metal washers with a 10mm hole

    After doing a few searches, I think I'm right in saying that the washer sizes are M2, M4... M10, M12 etc??

    I've googled to find out what these sizes are
    I can't find anywhere a simple difinition!

    Can someone advise?
    I wanted really thin ones and really thick ones - is there a naming convetion relating to the thickness?

    Thanks!

    lol
    i thought i wrote it - i had in mind but must have missed

    i need 'goldish' colour
    brass would be fine for example

    similar to silver, doesn't have to actually be real genuine silver

    actually... maybe i was imagining... in my search, for some reason copper washers cost a lot more? any reason why? i would like because of the colour

    (before someone asks - i need to the washers to make something - not fix something)

    thanks

    Google what you want.


    'Brass washer' for brass washers
    and 'copper washers' for copper washers and then take your pick

    When you ask for a 10mm (10M)washer you get get one that fits a 10mm shaft.

    The number gives you the clearance size of the hole and there are type"A" and type "B" for thin and thick.

    A "10 m/m washer" will be about 10.5 m/m inside dia.

    I know screwfix do a washer kit with lots of different sizes etc, if your still not sure you could buy it from them and just try to match it up with the screws you have? Not too expensive from what I recall.

    thanks guys
    i now know what m10 means :)
    + know what the thickness is

    screwfix seem ok on prices
    but i can get similar or cheaper on ebay
    even if more expensive - i'd rather pay a small extra and have delivered to me door

    alarm: i thought that was a spam post. i was going to report. but then i thought maybe it was a wry joke
    i told u in my original post: i searched but couldn't find an answer

    If you are after a 'gold' type finish, 'yellow passivated' may be ideal
