    Machine screws with the heads chopped off? Do they need to be brass?

      You're a star mate! No they don't need to be brass, will they screw in to the female thread on a bankstick?

      Regards

        No there is a difference between Unified Fine ( USF) and British Standard Fine ( BSF ) which is the standard thread for banksticks and nets etc. If the pitch is the same the angles of the threads will be different. You require 3/8 BSF thread.

            You shouldnt have a problem getting a length of 3/8 BSF studding, if you go online to one of the smaller companies or someone local they should will cut it down for you, no problem. I bought some a few months ago and a local supplier cut it into lengths for the price of a pint

                3/8 bsf seems a common thread size on older engines, exhaust studs. Try a local motor factor.
