Daniel (Dafi here on MSW) has some on his site.  You might check with him.  http://www.dafinismus.de/plates_en.html#anker7   There might be other sources also but I've used some of his photo etch and it's excellent.


See "plate 7" at the above link.  His are all in mm so you'll need to do a conversion to see if the size is correct.

Just curious..  Could you humor us with some context?


In the image below, is the smallest eyebolt I have in my collection at about 1mm ID..


The red dot is about .25mm ..


It is barely visible when printed and smaller than most of the thread I own.






I certainly admire the effort that requires anything at this scale..   It is way off of my radar..

Take a look at this model railroad car/parts site. There is a .010 wire next to the photoetched eyebolts for comparison:


Eyebolts with and without collars, about halfway down the page.
