Question

Hi Folks,

Can anybody help! I am seeking a small piece of steel rod, it measures 4.75 m but I believe that is 3/16 imp , about 7 inches long, I have hunted around various engineering shops and even the local marine engineers, but alas, no smegging luck!! They all deal in 5m metric, but that is just too big! If anyone has a spare piece knocking about I would be very grateful, pretty please! or ... if anyone knows somewhere that sells imp (other than the US) and could put me in touch?

 

Many thanks

 

Fred

Mallard Metal Packs http://www.mallardmetals.co.uk or several others who supply the model engineering fraternity should be able to fix you up.

Cheers
