DT1 - club spares list

Postby pure~hillman~imp » Mon Jun 12, 2017 7:21 pm

Hi all, to save hassling the spares team I was wondering if anyone could confirm for me whether DT1 (hinge plate door stainless with screws) is the plate that sits inside the inner arch that the lower hinge mounts to? If it is I can put my order in and save everyone a bit of time.

Thanks

It is indeed metric

Fits well, but its a real PITA when you have a hand full of screws taking doors on/off to set position and try and put the wrong one in while holding a damn heavy object at arms length .....

I have not orderd any yet but I also plan on doing the same as Dave has done and use socket head countersunk screws instead of those damn cross head devils which end up being rounded to hell after many years of having impact drivers fired at them then badly fitting screwdrivers.......

I'll probably be looking into the same, we have a really good local nut and bolt supplier who have sorted me out with no end of stuff in the past, unless there's an easy online supplier?

Thanks for clearing that up!

The top plate doesn't tend to be affected by corrosion as it isn't exposed like the lower one. Regrettably you would end up with imperial bolts in the top plate and metric in the lower. But once refitted, it should be good for many years.
