I could check my local "industrial" hardware store.

How many/soon do you need (them)?

This is a pretty good place to order from.

Fastenal is pretty good too if you have one local to you.

Here's one of the main metric fastener distributors in the US, They've been around before most Americans even knew what metric was.

Yeah, when I think Fuel Economy it's always in L/100km.

On the original request, they seem to exist here:

Not very common in the US ... I have set my cars and motorcycles all to metric, but I also grew up with it.

Regarding metric fasteners, I bought some here:

http://www.boltdepot.com

Not certain, but that might be what was asked for:

Metric fasteners are easy to buy-"onesies" are the harder issue in fasteners! Google "fasteners" for your area as a starter. Fastenal charges for shipping on their own (regular) truck to your local store-I avoid them whenever possible, as I can have it sent directly to my rural location on my own dollar!
On common stuff I use www.albanycountyfasteners.com

Thanks for the link!

It's VERY difficult to find stainless socket heads in the 10 X 1.25mm thread. You can normally only find 1.5mm thread pitch in 10mm, which is great for US and Euro stuff, not at all useful for JIS machinery.

NONE of the "standard" metric hardware suppliers have these -- not McMaster-Carr, not Bolt Depot, not MMCC, not Grainger, and certainly not Fastenal.
