    I believe they are called Schnorr safety washers and I'm guessing that they are not included in the pattern kits as they are patented and only manufactured by Schnorr.

    cheers, Tom

    Years ago I worked at QLD Fasteners and I picked up some from there - they were identical from memory. That company was part of Coventry Group which have a chain in every state I believe. Maybe go into one of their shops or any industrial fastener place with a sample and you may get a result... Worth a try and I doubt they would charge nearly $2 a unit.

    No prob's Mark re the link - lot of good vibes happening with everyone's posts.

    Think there is a Qld Fastener shop not far from me so if you know the size and type (flat or split) I'd be happy to drop over and see what they got.

    You are very correct with that name there Tom, i used to purchase these from Geelong Fastners when i was in the engineering trade some years back, you can also get from J Blackwood and sons etc.

    When you are camping close enough to civilisation to take advantage of it, and head into town to the chinese takeaway.

    Race back to the campsite before it gets cold, poptop up, glasss of wine ready, open up the entrée of salt and pepper calamari and ...... you have to add salt.

    AND pepper !!!!!

    When there is only three ingredients, one would think they would try adding the other two !!!!!!!!!

    WTF didn't they just call it " boring as batshit calamari " ??????????


    However, much was forgiven soon after. Mongolian lamb, a quiet red and camping on the banks of the murray is rather soothing.
