Default "e" clips source

I had to replace the motor shaft in my Ares P-51 Mustang and lost and found the e-clip twice. managed to get it pressed n my third attempt. Is there an outside source from these things, cause it might been ugly if I hadn't found the thing. Thanks!

Measure the diameter inside of the groove. Order accordingly. Ebay has a lot of sellers. The RC cars use a lot of them in various sizes. I bought some assortments for like $4.

Any time I am working with those, I do so inside of a one gallon clear plastic bag. Many times it has contained an e clip that decided it wanted to be a missile.

A plastic bag works also. Try hardware stores.
