Remember though that Stainless Steel will sometimes seize or gall when tightened under load--especially with larger sized fasteners. To prevent this apply a little Never-Seize or Anti-seizing compound.

These will fit a 1/2 inch threaded rod?
These nuts are 13 threads per inch. If the threaded rod has the same threads per inch, they will fit.
Sure, if you buy 1/2" nuts for the corresponding thread. I mostly use 1/4-20 nuts and never had a problem. I use them on silicon bronze bolts sometimes because of the price.

Well, that depends on the pitch and thread coursing of the 1/2" rod.
Threads per inch, standard v vs fine are the key issues. If the rod is threaded in 1/2" by 13 threads, a common nut of this size will fit. If the rod is threaded with fine threads, an appropriate nut will be required. You could go to a Home Depot or similar store and try a nut on your rod for compatibility, then order from Jamestown the appropriate nut. Stainless 316 is a better choice than SS 304 for saltwater applications (and tend to cost more!).
Sure if the threads per inch matches up. Typical 1/2" threaded rod is 13 threads per inch, fine thread is 20.
How can i make them colored? What kind of paint?
Best answer is see what the paint manufacturer says about adhering to stainless steel......that being said, I've got s/s cap nuts in the inside of boat that have several coats of interlux white on them from painting ceiling....looks fine!
Fingernail polish (lacquer).
Thank you both!I think I'll try with the fingernail polish first because it's easier to find :-)
I need 100 nuts at 24 threads per inches and the bolt is about 1/8 wide. What size?
The most likely size is 8-24. They are actually almost 11/64 inch diameter, but it is the smallest screw using 24 threads per inch.
not possible to answer without an exact size.
Quality, Time, and Price
QUALITY, TIME AND PRICE are always significant factors in any purchase. JD QUALITY is second to none. JD PRICES are extremely competitive, but can be "BEAT." But the TIME required to search a hundred retailers to save a few pennies will just "BEAT" you up ... so why bother?

I bought these stainless steel hex nuts because the ones i was using from my local hardware store were zinc and not rust proof. My original bracelet that I made from the zinc hex nuts was brought about by my motorcycle riding and wanting a bracelet that looked like the chain on my bike or at least resembling it. After finding out that the zinc will not wear well someone told me that there are stainless steel ones and I went looking for some online and found this site. Compared to other sites the prices were excellent. [...]
Very Nice Quality
I bought these actually to weave together as jewelry. I was mostly concerned with price and look.The price was very good and they look great!

Cost less for the 20 minimum purchase than the 8 needed would have been locally.
A perfect nut for me

5/16" SS hex nuts
Great nuts. Use them regularly for all applications where the finest nuts should be used.
