Lisi, you are in jolly Olde England, where the populous expects to have 
to go to a specialty supplier for such.

But lets put this in the Paraguay context from long distance crystal ball 

As an old Iowa farm kid, if the Monkey-Ward or Snears & Row-it-back 
catalog didn't have it, and you had already checked the local hardware 
store, you did without, but I'd suspect his local hardware store in 
Paraguay would be at least as well stocked as our small town (pop 270) 
hardware store was in the 1950's era. I don't recall ever going in it 
and coming out without a workable solution for whatever this guy, who 
was a "geek" before the word was invented, was making at the moment.
