Grainger - www.grainger.com - or visit your local store. They seem to sell more large bits with flatted shanks than Home Depot does. Prices are competitive and service is great.

Slight hijack but still on topic...

15 of the 6mm x 1.0 bolts came out of my cap just fine. The heads on the other 6 snapped heads. Where (locally) did you guys pick up your left hand drill bits?

Default ricardojm broken bolts

centerpunch the broken bolt (still in the tub) ,dab with oil ,carefully drill out with drill small enough to fit in your 6mm un-damaged threaded hole , then chase the threads with your 6 x 1 tap and more oil. i suggest you buy the tap and die together . the die can chase and clean up rusty bolts for re-use . i like cobolt bits when available in the size you need . drill slowly in hardened steel bolts to avoid over-heating your bit and to keep centered .
