Default headshell parts

Does anyone know where one can obtain a supply of headshell bayonet connectors ( sme type, male part)? I don't fancy robbing existing 'shells.

I did a search and although this question has been asked before there was no answer.

Sorry, thought I saw the bayonet fittings there but now that I look through the page again I was obviously hallucinating!

Ridiculously expensive.
I was trying to source some from manufacturer's in China, which I did, but minimum quantity was 2000. (A few more than I needed. )
Their price was 11 cents each though!
