Default What size nut fits this Dubro ball link?

The black post is a dubro 1/16" ball link. It has a smaller sized thread then 2-56. For some reason, Tower Hobbies sells the 1/16" ball links with nuts as a set, but they do not list the 1/16" nut seperately as they do with 2-56 or 4-40 sized nuts that they sell seperately. Might this be a metric sized nut I'm looking for? BTW, this is the same 1/16" thread of many of those thin push rods included with many ARF kits. Without the 1/16" nut, that thin black shaft of the ball link will pull out of the hole of a common servo arm.

Most of Du Bro links are either 2056 or 4-40. Do not mistake the .112" dia of a 4-40 for 1/8" hardware!

According to the Dubro website it's a 0-80 thread (1/16 inch diameter)

Started checking dimensions myself to find out that it is indeed a 0-80 tap which equals 1/16" and .06" The larger 2-56 size is .086" and not what I'm looking for.
These very tiny sized nuts are available cheap on Ebay (50-100 of them for a few dollars shipped.) Thanks.
