M6 Special Flat Cap/Blind nuts

Monday, July 17th, 2017

It took us just 2 hours to make a small batch of these cap nuts to our customers sample. He didn't know what thread was being used and he found the cap the sample he had wouldn't go all the way. But we were able to modify the internal thread profile slightly to allow a deeper thread engagement without altering the overall size of the nuts. Another customer happy with our goods that they'll be ordering a much larger quantity from us!

M16x1.5 DIN985 NYLOC NUTS IN BRASS

Monday, December 12th, 2016

We made some nylon insert nuts in a fine pitch format out of CZ121 (CW614N) hexagon brass bar. These were made to DIN985 standard and are often known as nylock nuts or nyloc nuts. These are a prevailing torque type of nut that uses a nylon ring to create increased torque upon application. When the nut is tightened onto a bolt or setscrew the nylon ring deforms and creates a tight frictional fit which reduces the risk of the nut loosening upon vibration. We typically use Nylon 66 in a natural colour for this. We typically use Tecamid 66 material for this.

M4 to M3 reducing hexagon coupler nut

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

We just made some M4 to M3 reducing hexagon coupling nuts for one of our regular customers in 303 stainless steel material. The nuts are tapped half way in each thread form from either side. They took a few hours to make and none were rejected during our testing process. This is an example of a special nut made to a customer's verbal specification. We did this without a drawing or a sample. We're trying to make smaller special nuts than our usual size limit. We can make double ended hexagon coupling nuts with any mixture of thread forms on one thread. If you want to mix metric and unified - no problem. If it's machinable, we'll do…
