source for 8mm (diameter) chainring bolts

i was recently given a junky 10-speed from the 80's or possibly early 90's - lugged, made in taiwan joker brand. i immediately started pulling the rusted and seized components off to convert to single speed, but i want to keep the original thun aero coronado crankset. problem is, i chucked the stripped chainring bolts before i realized they were non-standard 8mm bolts, as opposed to the 10mm track bolts i had ready to replace them with. the cranks and 42/52 chainrings are in great condition and i'm really not comfortable drilling them out.

anyone have a source for 8mm chainring bolts? singles or doubles, as i don't mind grinding them down (which is what i should have done with the originals).
