    Default Wanted - Landing net nut

    Hi there, (not sure whether to put this in FS/Wanted or here where people with coarse gear are more likely to be reading?) Does anyone have a broken landing net handle / bank stick that I could scavenge the long 3/8" BSF nut from. Ideally looking for a stainless nut, but it's not essential. PM me if you've something suitable. Thanks.

    Depends what you want it for, there are a number of different kinds, if your fixing it into a tube of some description you will need to know the internal and external diameters.
    I could turn one up if I knew what the sizes are that you require.

    Wow that's a kind response. It's to make a short light handle for landing nets so I can convert them to and from a pan net. I have the light carbon tube from an old 1990's carbon mountain bike handle which I've cut down to a straight section 200mm long. It still has a small aluminum collar in the grip handle end that will take the nut which I haven't cut out yet so I don't know the ID yet. The collar will need to go as I don't want any different metal to metal contact in case of galvanic corrosion if it ever sees saltwater use. The ED is 22.2mm like all mtb handlebars.

    I considered using a mini bank stick and cutting off the spike, but they are going to be too narrow a diameter for easy handling, I don't need any telescoping, and they're heavy at the cheap end and the carbon ones are pricey. Using an old mtb handgrip means that it's a good size to hand and I can put on a cheap silicone grip for a great professional finish.

    My "dream item" would be a stainless cylindrical external top hat profile with the hat at the ID of the carbon rod and the brim just wider that the ED of the carbon rod at 23mm. Narrow section around 30-40mm long and wider (brim) section 10mm long. All with a full through bore tapped to 3/8" BSF which I believe is the standard for all/coarse nets?

    I was going to "bodge expoxy" something together packing out any difference between diameters etc., but if you can tool something like that I'd be very willing to pay a fair rate. Or if you tool 2 nuts I could make 2 grips using both ends of the bar and both grips keep one and give you the other as payment? Both those parts come as a pair after all...

    That would be brilliant thank-you. I could use 2 or 3 if they have that many for another net project, or if they're suitable maybe they could be used as blanks so Bumble only needs to machine the outside of the piece. Thanks again. PM sent.

    As it is to be used in sea water, even if only occasionally, I would suggest that phosphor bronze is the better material.
    Stainless steel would be subject to possible galling and even 316 ss would react with a different metal on the landing net itself causing the whole thing to seize up.
    Nice idea to use broken parts but they are designed for use in fresh water and are like as not made of brass which would lose some of it's copper content when in contact with sea water, (the copper would be replaced by salt crystals), or aluminium alloy which will rapidly corrode.

    Bumble - Thanks. I have the internal diameter now, but I'm still checking the bolt threads on my nets. I don't want to mess you around so I'm being methodical
    Rob - I'd still be grateful for whatever you can find.
