Anyone know who makes these turnbuckle bases?
They have a part number stamped on the bottom of 264-17. I called Bergeron and they are going to see if they have any that were take offs. I need two more to take the B-boat up to 10 turnbuckles and I'd like them all to match.
Well that is if I can find a shop around here to get new plates made. Two shops today told me they never heard anyone ask for the grain of the metal to run a certain direction. One of them told me the old cav plate was special metal because it was metric (he measured it at .207 thick). I tried to explain to him that it was probably standard .250 that was sanded and polished at one point in it's life. He said, no it was metric and it was probably special ordered, especially if the grain direction has to be identified so the part can be cut out a certain way.
I sure do envy some of you on the coast where parts and suppliers are easy to find.
