I wanted to get some assorted spare bolts.

I'm missing the rear brake hose clamp and bolt. I have a clamp, but none of my metric bolts fit. I also wanted to carry a spare gear change pedal bolt.

I thought I would just buy an assortment, but I don't know what to get. I'm bound to need some others later.

If you mean the swingarm fitting, pretty sure it's 1/4 unc.

does a M6 nearly go in then stop?

This would make a good Mastermind topic lOl (Does that still exist, don't think it made it to Australia, too intellectual)

Surely this depends on how hard you're hitting it with the hammer?

My Dad wrote a book called 'The Real Richard Roberts' which provided some evidence that Henry Maudesley copied some of the work of Roberts when he developed the screw cutting lathe. Richard Roberts was from my village 8-)

The 'eat' (entertainment) smiley is supposed to be above your last comment Adam...Your Pa sounds like he was a very interesting chap from the posts I've read about him on this forum. :)
