Default 1/4" Whitworth nuts?

Does anyone know where I can get 1/4" Whitworth thread nut's from?

Need it to mount a Sky dish to a Camera Tripod (yep, really, my Wireless network needs more range!)

It's exactly the same as 1/4" UNC, widely avalable.

Having said that, 1/4" Whit was the standard tripod thread for many years but as the Yank consumer market is so large and they don't like anything that isn't American, Most camera and optical fittings made in the last 20 years are actually 1/4"unc
Fúck the crest form and all that shíte, it'll fit and tighten up.

That's all I need. Not a precision job, just bodging a Skydish onto a tripod.

Happybiker, you'll have a PM in a second mate.
