I seem to have read about washers on this forum perhaps but can't locate the post now.

I have a few razors where I can see marks on the base plate due to tightening of the handle.

Where are such washers available? Any help with dimensions etc is welcome too. I am not able to find it locally here.

Thanks in advance.

I just put a drop of sewing machine oil on the post of the top cap with a q-tip and only use rubber O-rings on the handle for slip resistance (if necessary).....any non smelling oil will work by the way...

I just landed some typical white nylon M5 washers like lloydrm mentioned above from an ebay seller - alab.design - they have different lot sizes. 

I have no affiliation with them other than buying the washers.  They seem to be a distributor for small electronic components - solenoids, bearings, fans, that kind of stuff and is a US seller. 

Ah, I see you are in India.  These guys ship to a lot of countries, but I don't see India listed.  Is that common?  Maybe try an electronics or hobby shop? 

Above The Tie also carries a nice looking 10 pack called '3 piece razor saver'.   I won't link to it, I'm not sure if they're affiliated with TSN or not, but its easy to find on their site.

Thanks for all the info Gents. I was not able to gather the part number and dimensions earlier. This might help now.

I overlooked ATT accessories section as the name didn't strike relevant to me. Thanks again.

If you don't mind waiting for delivery from China, you can get clear nylon ones from homemart_uk_0 on the auction site for $0.99 for 10 or $1.33 for 30 of them.

For m5 washers (internal diameter 5mm) what external diameter do you pick? There are various options, 7.5mm, 10mm etc. Guess it depends on the handle but is there some size you prefer?

I use these on all my stainless DE's.  I also use them on Hart Steel straight razors.  The Hart Steel uses a hex screw assembly instead of a pin.  These razors have a thin nylon washer, which is not durable,  on each side of the hex screw assembly.  The washers sit between the tang and the scales.  The M5 10mm x 1mm washers are the same diameter but slightly thicker, and make a good replacement for the original Hart Steel washers.

Here is the washer on a Timeless.
