My 82 year old father-in-law is refurbishing a Corely 395 saw mill. He’s done a pretty good job of turning a field full of rusted parts into something workable. Right now he’s trying to find the 1 1/2” mandrel nut for the blade. Corely Mfg Co wants approx $32.00 for that nut (part# 71019).

Any chance someone here would know where he could find one at a lower price? We’d be grateful for any help/advice on this subject.

Size? Thread count? Material?

could try a Fastenal but you need to know size and thread ct

The nut is an 1 1/2” rhthread, 6 tpi, but it’s not exactly a standard thread. I’m looking for a replacement to keep from spending too much money on a single nut.

Take a look at Mcmaster-Carr ( They have a variety of nuts that have a 1 1/2”-6 thread, in materials from steel to silicon-bronze, and cost anywhere from $7 to $113. Maybe one might work for you?

Good luck!

*After typing that I realized that you’re looking for a mandrel nut, and the parts i was looking at on Mcmaster are hex nuts. Maybe those will still work for you? They don’t seem to have mandrel nuts with anything larger than 1/2” thread.

Thanks for the reply, but yeah, the thread is one of those with flat valleys. Can’t remember what they call those.

Acme. Yes, that’s it.

Somewhere on this forum are folks who have 395 Corley Mills. I hoped they could lead me to someone with a spare mandrel nut. If not, we can bite the bullet and buy one from Corley Mfg Co.

Have your say...
