Centaur Brake Cable Anchor Bolt

Well, now I went and did it, I lost a cable anchor bolt for a Centaur brake. Any tips on where to get a replacement? It is smaller than the ones I have in my parts bucket.
Thanks

Looks like a replacement will run you about $25 though!

If you have the anchor bolt for the other caliper, can you match the thread with a hex head bolt from the hardware store and cut it to the required length?

Nice link, thanks

Wow, those parts are expensive. I can buy a whole new set for $76 including shipping. That would give me the next set of pads too. But first I will try Hillriders suggestion of a hardware store. For some reason that hadn't occured to me.
