seek source for Schaller M6 standard (large) metal buttons

Hi folks -

New on here... I've done a bit of searching on this subject, but it can be like finding a needle. Only a couple posts that happen to meet my search requirement.

Question: I am searching for metal Schaller M6 buttons. Schaller-Electronic.com lists versions of the M6 buttons (large and mini) but only sell to wholesalers. I have checked with Stew-Mac, Allparts, and Warmoth. They either don't carry the various metal button finishes (only have ebony and ivoroid) or nothing at all.

In particular, I am looking for M6 buttons in black chrome or ruthenium. I'd rather not replace the whole tuner set, and in fact I prefer the look of a black button on chrome hardware. I could go with ebony, but the set that was on my Larrivee guitar (second owner) had a couple that were stripping out. So, sometime ago, I replaced the stock with chrome Schaller M6, and now would like to convert the button color.

Can anyone offer additional retail sources?

Thanks in advance.
