Default Place to buy metric drill bits, shims, screws, etc.?

I'd like to purchase .1 mm increment drill bits and .05-.1mm thickness shims/washers similar to the clutch shims, but a smaller diameter. Plus a place to buy metric screws.

Shouldn't your local hardware store have these items? Especially the drill bits.
For screws you can check Fastener Express

Calandra Racing has a great assortment of shims with large and small OD that work great for clutch shims.

I've found short length metric drill bits in .1 mm increments at MSC, was going to buy them to drill out clutch weights.

That last link doesn't work. try www.mscdirect.com and look for metric drill bits then screw machine drills. That should work.
