Thanks very much to all those who answered. Jason gets the prize with Forrest Classics,

Brian

Ive seen Keith Appleton use Forrest elbows and he's had to re-tap them as the thread in them is US

Harry

The U S tapped ones are probably the single finished machined items bought in from P M R in America as opposed to the casting sticks.

Sorry didn't know PMR offered them unthreaded blush

Thread: Toss Up scam or not
22/05/2021 15:11:28

Received email yesterday afternoon saying Yodel had tried to deliver a package at 14.05 which I found strange as I had been in since 13.00 so having placed an order with Macc on Thursday with 3-4 day delivery is it a scam or was it my package ? After some detective work checked my ring door bell no alert to back that up reviewed CCTV which proved no one had been to my door so treated the email as you do with a scam.

My package arrived this morning bright and early smiley
