cotter keys substitute for waddington shanks

I have been tying a little bit with waddington shanks purchased from JAck. As I ran out of the purchsed shanks, I visited a hardware store and looked at the cotter key selection, bought a few in various sizes and weights, took the pliers to them, and lo and behold, I have an incredible array of sizes and weights of semi-waddington shanks, or sons of waddington, or something akin to a waddington shank. Anyway, just a thought in case you run out of real waddingtons...
