Here is a quick, cheap and easy way to make the spoke nipple washers you find rusted to hell inside of your old rims. New spoke and nipple sets don't come with them, so you end up having to do without or use the old rusty one on your new wheels. I bought stainless steel 6M washers at my local hardware retailer, an old Honda 6 mm tapered head screw (good Japanese steel!) and a 3/8" deep well socket. Put that in your vise, press it together and presto!

Hope this helps someone. I was pulling my hair out trying to find replacement belleville washers that matched these dimensions, but was either unsuccessful or it was cost prohibitive in stainless. This method cost all of $5.00.
