Default Where Can I get These Jig Wing Nuts?

Hi,
I'm in the UK. See the attached tenon jig photo I've tried to find those big black wing nuts, can't find them or anything like them. Any idea where I can source in the UK. If can't get in UK will have to think abroad, any ideas?
Cheers.

Peter,

You can make them as well using t-nuts and scrap blocks. Bobj3 has a tutorial or two on how to make your own wood knobs.

I've used brass and aluminum ends and tapped out the right sized hole as well.

Hi Peter

I do enjoy making knobs of all types but I will say the big wing type like to snap off easy too small of mass around the center nut the norm but here's some links that you can use to make your own very easy and quick..that will stand up to the test of time.

I make most of them for the cost of the tee nut about 10 cents each or less and some scrap stock out of the bin, I have about 100 or so on hand most of the time but for the last year I have been using pop bottle caps ,it's just quicker and cheaper and they work just as well..

Hope this helps
