Default Brass Lug Inserts

Would anyone have any brass lug inserts/swivel nuts they'd consider selling? I have my old Ludwig 12 X 15msnare drum sounding great so I'd like to "prettify" it up a bit! I could use 24. Thank you very much.
Brian

Joe:
Thanks VERY much for responding! I really appreciate it, sir. I have tried DFD, but I'm not sure that any will fit. On the second site down, there were some Pearls that MIGHT work. Packs of 12 would be great. It says they will fit standard size 7/32 tension rods, but are 5.8 mm thread. This is what confuses me. I know the thread of Ludwig tension rods is 12-24. At least, I'm relatively sure that is the thread size. I have no idea if a metric 5.8 thread is the same. Maybe others will know. I can contact DFD too. Anyway, thanks very much for helping, sir!

Metric 5.8 is 10-24 in sae. So smaller diameter.
