    Sorry but I have to ask again - what 3/8" thread? If it's an old bolt, then it might be (imperial) BSF or BSW, newer might be (unified) UNF or UNC. Might, just, if it's a bit sloppy on its OD, be M10, depending on how accurately you have measured it. You might end up having to buy a matching tap and making it yourself, unfortunately, unless you have a kind forum member nearby with a lathe and good set of taps!

    Edit - I see that you've more or less reached that conclusion!

    Screw Size: 3/8" UNF x 1.1/2" long Thats what I found will fit in the chuck , thats why I thought it would fit in the bush.. that sounds naughty lol :)

    Sorry mate - they may be metal, but most of the ones I have seen are acetal. I would give Bob or Chris at Context a ring and check it out. You could always use a brass hosetail ??? - Rob

    It does say Plastic, I have canceled them . They are a bit steep if plastic as you can get a the same size stainless steel for 3 and they come in at 2.50 ?
