Had a look mate but nothing. In the past I have used the spacers that come with modern day brake pads

Putting two half moon washers together will give you about 7mm. Not sure what you're trying to do. Fastener place will have stainless spacers so should be easy to find. Please login or register to see this image. /monthly_2018_09/image.png.f428a27b13f3e2024894926ca6cee0b6.png" alt="image.png" />

Make one from alloy rod. Cut off the length you need, put it in a vice and drill a hole through it. Or drill the hole and then cut it off.

Yeh i could do that IF i had some rod.Probably would have to buy a minimum length of a meter that i would never use again!Looking like a might have to get the 10 pack for $20 off Porkchop in the states and have 9 i will never use again!

Can’t make this work from oldschoolbmx? 

Got the gap for the spring but I don’t reckon you’d notice it

Who would've thought it'd be so hard to find. I had nothing to do for a while so had a look online and couldn't find any that I thought would suit. I had a look thru my bits and pieces and couldn't find one either. 

On the plus side though I did find a gold stem I didn't know I had:good_mini:

I know it's not going to suit your PK but one of my old girls has a couple of old skateboard bearings as spacers. I can only assume that was an easy fix BITD. image.jpeg

What about the round finned spacer from the  Kool Stop/Skyway brake pads? Seen them used more than once.
