Please write if you know some data about producers or sellers of aneroid capsules for aircraft instruments. I need more than a dozen of them, but only aneroids, and not the whole instruments.
Previously I was only able to find aneroids for stationary use (for instruments on Earth, not in aircrafts), but they are much larger than aneroids in aircraft instruments. Of course, I would like to avoid the "solution" to buy one barometric instrument to get one aneroid

You might want to check some aircraft salvage yards. I know when I was out at Mojave Spaceport over the summer, I walked around a pretty cool salvage yard. I remember pallets full of aircraft instruments just sitting in the sun. I seriously doubt they will ever make their way into another aircraft. You might be able to get a bunch of them really cheap. I'll try to dig up their name and send it to you later today.
