Where to get 3mm ball bearings

I've found that myself and others have lost a few of the ball bearings that go into the housing that actuates the clutch disengagement at the engine shaft. It's a little ramp assembly with about 12 ball bearings packed in grease and a little retainer. Apparently I've lost some. I only have 5. Anyone know where I can find 3 mm ball bearings locally. They're not expensive, but I don't really need a pack of 250. I'm trying to make things tip top for a safe fun year.

The one I went to didn't have any that small. There is a joke in there somewhere.

Thanks for checking. I'll probably go get 100. If anyone needs any, let me know! It's not worth the time searching for 6 bucks.

Dude, I ordered some silicon tube dampers from McMaster and they were at my door the same day!

Just order your damn baggie of bearings, and shoot the ones you don't use with a wrist-rocket dammit!
