I have some furniture which was made in Europe. The bolts and what-not are all in metric measurements. Some of the bolts came loose and were misplaced, and some of the pieces necessary for converting stages of the furniture were missing.
I went to the local hardware store, and they did not stock more than a very basic supply of metric sized hardware. I searched online and could not find anywhere to order metric sizes.
How can I, using U.S. sizes of hardware, work with European sized threaded-sockets? Both the lengths and the thicknesses are issues. Is there a way to adapt the sockets so that they will fit standard measurement hardware? Perhaps something that can be stuffed into the sockets, or something like that, so that a smaller size standard piece would fit??
