Are Strap screws and female threads common?


Recommended Posts

I have a question about Strap screws and their female threads.

Are they common ones available at DIY stores in the UK?

It seems that there is only one type in Japan, just because of the difference in screw diameter.

No, you could never buy them in DIY shops. They have always been made specially for concertinas.

I see there is another type, which might be suitable (depending on the diameters of the thread and the knurled top - what sizes are they?), on that website:

I have found I can get suitable ones, in brass or stainless steel, by post from a UK supplier, but they have a metric M3 thread and can only be bought in packs of 50.

The product presented is for use at the top of the water crew handle. On other sites it was W3 / 16. I never thought I could use it like that.
