Sourcing old imperial washers

I have a kitchen mixer, that is dripping, and have managed to get to the washers and measure. The dimensions are

1in (26mm) external
5/8 (16mm) internal
3/32 (2mm) thickness; guessing this would have been a bit thicker, originally

I have tried B&Q, posted an enquiry to screw fix and Plumb Centre, and searched Amazon and eBay, but have had no luck in sourcing the washers.

Any tips as to where I might find something like this

Thanks

It's a similar situation with nuts and bolts.

Pretty much everything made in the UK is metric.

I'm into American made vinyl jukeboxes (I've two) where nuts and bolts are all AF.
Daren't lose any when I'm servicing them.

My go to place for non-metric fasteners and washers is fastpack-york.co.uk
Every time I needed bits, they came up trumps!
