    DB

    Have been using those type of connectors on my coarse nets, rod rests and other bits for many years. Bought mine in a tackle shop not sure if they are still made anymore. Mine have never let me down and have had a few double figure barbel in my net with no problem.

    Have a look on Amazon seem just like the ones I use. Might buy a pack just in case.

    In case you don't check your PM's wrongfoot, the nut's are done but I warn you they weigh 50 grams each, I have some suggestions for you to get the weight down if your want.
    They are in 316 stainless but my metal supplier also suggested naval bronze would be preferable. I had the stainless already but I asked him anyway.

    Two nuts arrived in the post this morning. Hurrah! Bumble's been so generous and prompt with his time (and materials) and generously ignored my offers to pay. Since a few people are interested in the engineering I'll post up the assembly to the finished article and cost it out.

    Tonight's job was to get the nuts degreased thoroughly (bike chain cleaner and a rinse of meths) to get any swarf off the piece and soaked for a few hours in a bath of some Citric Acid to passivate the stainless steel. The acid dissolves the Iron from the surface of the metal leaving a film of the remaining Chromium and Nickel of the alloy. Then I'll need to rinse and dry the nuts and leave exposed to the air for a week so the Chrome and Nickel will oxidize to a protective coating. This is why stainless steel is rust resistant. A lot of this happens naturally over time when a piece is open to the elements for rain to wash out the iron and air to oxidize the coating, but the plug of the nut is going to be glued inside a rod to make the handle and that will mean the metal isn't exposed to air for a coating to develop quickly. I'd rather have it sorted before gluing it. As usual Wiki will tell you all about it Passivation (chemistry) - Wikipedia.

    As well as making sure the metal is as corrosion proof as possible, this will also help prevent cold welding (galling) of the screw threads if over-tightened to a similar stainless net bolt without lubricant. Not that I intend to do anything of the sort.

    More later...
