    Looking for a 1" x 14 fine thread nylon/plastic nut to use on the layover
    marine antenna mount post.

    I've found a bunch of online sources for nylon and plastic nuts, but they
    don't quite make it to 1"x 14. Close, but not right on.

    If anyone knows where I can buy two or three of these, I'd appreciate
    hearing from you on it.

    Try McMaster Carr: If it is hardware and it i
    for sale, they should have it.

    McMaster Carr is a good suggestion. If you run into a dead end there
    I'd suggest contacting a plastic distributor. Not a molder, but
    somewhere that carries rod & sheet stock. They can fabricate a nut for
    you pretty inexpensively. Either cut out of nylon plate stock, or
    sliced off nylon rod stock. The drilling and threading wouldn't be a
    big deal if a person had the right size tap.

    This thread is used by the major antennae manufacturers.
    Try them or antennae suppliers.
