Re: Small Thames Boat Repair
Have you thought about buying bronze bar and threading it yourself- it's even cheaper, and you can pick up UNC, BSF or Whitworth (depending on your preference) dies from all sorts of cheap places. You would just need the nuts then.
Metals4u is usually pretty good at supplying bronze- however most metal stockists keep bronze bar upto 3/4" in stock, if you have one nearby it might be worth getting in touch, they may also stock dies to suit.
Don't get heated...get steamed up!
