I will definitely use Jamestown as a source of my supplies.

I use these for decorative caps in the construction of wood-gear clocks. The previous reviewer is correct in saying that these are not well finished and not "decorative" [...]. They are, however, solid brass, so I spin them on a threaded rod in the drill press and polish them with fine abrasive paper and Nevr-Dull, after which they look fine.

The example photo shows a nice crown on the acorn nut. However, the actual crown looks like they have all been flattened with a hammer. I was looking more for an aesthetic look rather than an industrial look. Will not order these again unless I can get what the photo actually looks like.

These acorn nuts are perfectly functional, but for a part with a decorative purpose, they are lacking. I had to spin them in a drill press and polish them with grades of sandpaper and Never-Dull to make them presentable on a wooden clock frame.
