I called Raymarine
to order the studs. After getting runaround and holding finally got someone service
department and described exactly what I needed which was the studs only. They gave me a part number and passed me over to the order department, gave them the number and paid extra for express shipping
because I was seriously pressed for time. Opened the package when it came and they'd sent me the nuts, not the studs. I was so pissed after spending hours on the phone
to finally get someone who supposedly understood what I needed and paying extra for express shipping
. Ended up fabricating the studs by cutting the heads off SS metric machine screws. Hope the SS doesn't cause problems as the Raymarine studs are brass/bronze. Because of the delay in getting the parts
wasn't able to install the instrument heads last time we were at the boat
. Hope to get it done this week.
