<font color='#000F22'>I've been trying to get hold of a few M8 stainless steel wingnuts for weeks ... it shouldn't be difficult but every dive shop in Scotland - well three off 'em ain't got any and even my trusty local chandlers have M6s and normal nuts but no M8 stainless.

Ideas chaps?

Find a better chandlers?
All the ones I've ever been in have had them...

If you need them urgently, get some from a DIY store. They'll rust in a matter of weeks, but they'll tide you over..

<font color='#000F22'>Thanks Daz - Dom I'm using normal ones at the moment and they are delightfully coloured. In fact the first set have almost disappeared!

Just been and got some myself, and nylocks + washers.

59p each for the wings nuts, 18p for the nylocks, 30p (iirc) for the washers. Don't know if this is a reasonable price, but its the only place I've found em.

If you want some, I'll get some more and put in post.

<font color='#000F22'>Thanks lads but worry no more as the site that Daz up has taken an order for all the wingnuts I'll ever need plus washers too.

Muchos appreciated the offers.
