It was me - viewtopic.php?f=21&t=3775

Philip Hall was kind enough to send a nut of the relevant size to me but I can't for the life of me remember what size it was...

I would have thought it either a 1mm or a 14BA. Actually you will find that both will probably fit.

Actually they won't. I found out the hard way.

Cheers,

14BA nut, not 1mm is used for Ultrascale. It doesn't look right, but at least you can finish the project while waiting for a new one.

Current Ultrascale crankpins use the M1 thread, so you might be waiting a while....
That would be an ecumenical matter.

I thought I had made a comment on this before, maybe I'm imagining things...

I think that it is only relatively recently that Ultrascale started using M1 screws, so if you have an earlier set, that may well be 14BA.

I had a sense of deja-vu too. turns out this has been recently discussed:
