    How about a picture.
    If all you need is a regular bolt with a countersunk top you could forge them. I also have a lot of countersunk bolts in up to about 1/4 inches dia. I could share.

    If it's a manufacture specific part you might try http://www.toolpartsdirect.com/

    I've used them before, but I've also just used them to get the part number for the part I need and then used that in google to find it cheaper.

    If it's not a manufacture specific part, you might try http://www.mcmaster.com/

    I use toilet bowl bolts in T-tracks. Usually have to cut them shorter, but the price is OK, they are easily available, and they work.

    My 2 cents
