Domed nuts (aka acorn nuts) source?
« on: March 22, 2020, 01:56:35 PM »
Could anyone point me in the direction of a fasteners supplier who sells domed nuts of the type that Yamaha used please? By this I mean the ones where the height of the dome is the same as the height of the hexagon head. All that I have seen on fleabay and Yambits are the ones where the dome is disproportionately high compared to the hexagon head.

I'd rather not pay the extortionate prices of Yamaha originals!

Many thanks.
