Bronze Bolts?

    Where's the best place to buy a small quantity of bronze bolts (4x 5/16 x 2"), nuts (4) and lock washers (4)?

    OR... can you use SS on a bronze seacock if you use nylon washers to minimize dissimilar metals contact?

    Thanks.

    I would not mount SS to Bronze on anything that goes below the waterline.  That said, if you do chose to do it, beyond a non-metalic washer I would suggest coating in something non-conductive like tef-gel. 

    You can find bronze fastners.  I would call Bud first because he seems to have damn near everything at a good price.  Alternatively many online etailers sell this stuff.  Try:

    Several years ago I bought a dozen silicon bronze bolts, washers, and nuts in few sizes from a local fastener supplies in Pasadena, Texas. Here are links for two suppliers I bookmarked a few years ago. Maybe they are still active.
