I'm trying to find these two metal connector parts to make a bulb socket on my device's :

enter image description here

It's a common part in bulb sockets and I don't know why I can't find them on the internet.

How can I find and buy these parts and parts like this ?

They're brass metal stamping parts. You can easily find a Chinese manufacturer that will supply them, as well as others, though some may want tooling charges so you may wish to look for one that already has the tooling on hand (and will maintain it at no cost to you).

The center contact is a simple stamping (it could be made by a couple of operations or in a progressive die). The socket part is formed by deep drawing.

You won't find them, because the bulb sockets are mass produced for such a low price and parts aren't replaceable. If you want those parts, then buy another socket.
