 I had a coffee can full of various wing nuts. Not a match for anything resembling the Mickey Mouse ear originals.
 I had this nickle plated pair of what I thought was 1/4"X20 thread holes. Easy. Turn down the one end of a 5/16"X18 bolt, re-thread and solder. Nope... they were # 14X24. Still no problem I had a 14X24 die!
 They work fine on my car.
 We went to church on Saturday night and Joan had to hold the top down on her side as I forgot I had the clamp bolt at the lathe!
