Job Lot Unified Nuts and Bolts

Post by NickDeAth » Sun Apr 28, 2019 7:33 pm

I found this lot during the continuing clear out of my shed. There is an assortment of UNF and UNC nuts and bolts mostly new although showing signs of the 35 to 40 years of storage . They came out of my service van in the early mid 80's. Sizes between 1/4" to 1/2"

I believe some of the Jaguars had unified threads.

Collection only from Romford Essex.

Hi Nick, is that a couple of 1/4" UNF Countersunk set screws I spy in the plastic bag in the last but one picture? If so I would be very grateful for up to 4 of those if you can spare just those please. I know you say collection but would it possible to pop them in a jiffy bag to me?

Hello Chris, I think that bag may be 5/16 I'll have a look tomorrow. I don't mind separating out a few I just want to get rid of them , there's a few kilos of bolts there. I'm never going to use them now but I hate throwing things away.

Hello Chris. The camera can be deceiving, the countersunk screw you can see in the bag is 3/8" !

However I have found 6 1/4 x 1" UNF countersunk socket head screws, any good to you?

Hi Nick, Many thanks for looking. I'm not sure what a countersunk socket head screw looks like. Is it slotted for tightening with a screwdriver so that if fitted to a countersunk hole the top would be flush with the surrounding surface?

Countersunk is fairly obvious, the screw head will sit flush with the surface it is screwed into. Socket head is the means to screw it in, instead of a slot you have a hexagon indent/recess and use an Allen key to do the screw up.

Ah, yes, completely clear now, I know exactly what you mean. They'd be perfect. I'll send you my address by PM or I can send you an SAE.
