Etched eyes

Does anyone know of a source for etched eyes?  I'm looking for pretty thin brass, and sized for .008 wire.
Thanks much,

Lift rings, maybe? GMM has detail sets, but this one is stainless steel: http://goldmm.com/nscale/gmndldet.htm

I think the BLMA lift rings were brass, but Atlas doesn't list them. C'est la vie!

The BLMA rings I have are stainless.  They're about ten years old though.

Try the Gold Metal Models steam locomotive details.  It has handrail stanchions.

The Atlas (BLMA) lift rings are still stainless.

How many does the set come with?  I pretty much have a continuous need for them.

I'd prefer brass so that I can solder them.

Easy enough to solder stainless.
