    I have had the best luck for metric hardware at the local Ace Hardware store. The big box stores don't have much metric selection, I don't have a Tractor Supply nearby, and the other farm supply stores don't have as good a selection. I will try there before I spend a buck plus shipping for a little nut from Hoye.
    If you have NAPA near you they should have metric nuts. Buy 1 each of the different small sizes ( 8,10,12, etc). They shouldn't cost too much

    I tried the standard 12 nut. Now the issue is that the shaft is rusted and stripped. When I tried to put the nut on it was cutting new threads. I was afraid to break the shaft and not be able to replace it, so I stopped. I might have to try to cut some new threads.

    It's worse than that. Some areas are completely flattened, and everything is rusty. I will try to get photos tonight or this weekend.
