    Wheel tightener for chair.

    Couldn’t be without mine bill. Used all the time just checking stuff It’s got to be over 25 yr old now when mitutoyo were manufacturing them here.

    They were almost certainly gonna be the same. it’s gonna be the same Chinese factory turning them out by the thousand and just sticking different labels on the side.

    OD is 24mm Width of thread at widest part 3.5mm Just over 5 threads in half an inch so 10.5 TPI. that’s mine.

    A better way to measure it. Measure the male threaded side You want the outside diameter which I think you’ve given. you want the width of the thread itself And you want the number of threads per inch. If you haven’t got an inch then do half an inch and double it. that will confirm for...

    Rod graphic removal advise

    I know it’s designed for not harming body work but just the thought of going near a rod with a big fast spinny thing sends shudders through my spine. remember it’s not flat like a car body. You could easily slip off the blank and run the drill chuck straight into it. take your time do it by...

    Rod graphic removal advise

    I would too although my clear coat application needs practice. I can never get it to the same standard of a professional application.

    Korum Fast mat

    I actually don’t mind it’s compact length so much any more. I thought it would be rather constricting to a long fish but I’ve found the tail of a 3 ft long barbel comfortably rests on the back wall causing no discomfort to the fish at all. a fold over flap would be ace mind

    It wouldn’t matter to me. The costs around a quality cork handle are for me, worth paying a premium for

    Niche tackle

    I made one of those river rests myself sometime ago. Never use it They are ok but need heat shrink where the rod is going to make contact. personally I think there are better rests for a lot less

    Wanted - Harrison Torrix

    Not for me at all. I personally can’t stand them. They don’t feel right, they don’t look right, they have a memory like an elephant and hold onto dents and knocks forever. They also look dirty really quickly. You can’t refresh them or carry out a sensible repair with them. Like you can with...

    Korum Fast mat

    I am normally but in this case function over form 🤣 Btw I’m glad you didn’t think of it because the way you’ve done it is a much neater job and I will probably do something similar.
