1" x 16 tpi nuts?

Talking about unusual threads, does anyone have two 1" x 16 tpi half
nuts (or single full nut)?
Any sort of metal will do. Beer token available.
If not, does anyone know where to find such a beast?
Thx,

Peter,
What is the application? I'm wondering if a standard M25 x 1.5 bearing locknut might do the job or be be modified to suit.

Or, even be used as a temporary fix to the lead screw so that a genuine 16TPI nut can be machined?

It's for a bearing locknut for the back end of the spindle in a Myford ML4 lathe.
I tried a m25x1.5 nut but it wouldn't fit.
Hmmm.. I have a m25x1.5 tap, got a suitable bit of hex brass somewhere - maybe if I went at it at a slight angle with the tap a few times? Two thin nuts, each with only a few threads engaged ..

and the postage. I presume you need the locknuts to get the lathe operational or you would use it to cut them. You're welcome to use my lathe as the metric ones should clean-up easily and if the spindle was out could be used to check fit.

Someone who lives a couple of hundred of yards from you has a Super 7, and is normally fairly good at helping out.
Shall I pass your details on to him?
