I've not seen the type used for the axle shafts. Are they serrated (on both sides or just one side) or a smooth finish disc? Schnorr is actually the manufacturer, not necessarily the type of lock washer. They're also sometimes called Belleville washers.

Best description of them i've seen is at Metric and Multistandard Components Co. Thanks to Warren/Early_S_Man for the info. on this company years ago.

Disc Springs

Ribbed/Serrated Springs

You can view the whole catalog by going to

and then clicking on the little red book icon on the left sidebar.

McMaster-Carr carries the Belleville washers, but the metric selection isn't as good.

and type in "belleville washer" in the command line @ the top left of the page.

Hope this helps?
