    Go on-line for nautical brassware. When I helped a friend revamp a ChrisCraft; we ordered almost everything on-line. Some things were reasonable; other very expensive, but he wanted everything as near original as possible. That varnished wood and shined brass was great.

    McMaster Carr probably has them too.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Isn't English ... wonderful?

    When I saw the thread title ("Part needed") I thought of everything but what Larry intended:
    * Hmmm ... some actor must be out-of-work. Who isn't?
    * Is someone really looking for a new haircut to better match his head / personality?
    * Someone needs a "warm fuzzy" ... they feel like they're only somewhat essential at work/home/the club, and they seek "validation".

    Whew - what a relief to find out that someone was just looking for a bit of metal. I don't think I could have been much help with the other scenarios....

    "Thanks Kerry; you've certainly been a big help for this scenario. "

    "Oh, don't mention it. "

    Yeppers, it is. A local hardware store has revolving displays that hold hundreds of hard to find parts. Since they are package alike, I surmise that the display, and parts, come from a source that specializes in this sort of thing. I don't believe that the BORGs would have these because genuine customer service is required from the employees.
