Does anyone know a supplier of 2 1/2" BSW Nuts ?

Require 4 No. for the holding down bolts on the bearing blocks of a 20 ton winding hoist (Static, not in use) at our local Cornish heritage tin mining museum, see

There was a thread looking for large imperial nuts on here recently, it might be worth you looking at that for potential suppliers.

I have put a link at the top of this post to the thread.


Another contact might be the "London Museum of Water and Steam".

They run very large engines, some "Cornish Engines" and might have a source of parts supply, link below.

Sneak along to the Forth Bridge at night with a big spanner? Surely they won't miss a handful?
