Default 1/2 x 28 nut or thread protector

Anyone know where to get a 1/2 x 28 nut or thread protector for cheap. I know I can get one for 10 bucks, but I just need something to thread on to a barrel for a project. Or if any of you have a spare flash hider or anything 1/2 x 28 that you don't want, let me know. Thanks.

I can get one on ebay for 10 bucks. Since I don't really care what it looks like, I was hoping someone knew of a place that had nuts with 1/2 x 28 threads.

1/2x28 is an odd size

1/2 13 tpi is your standard coarse thread, 1/2 20 tpi is your fine thread.
If you can find a 1/2 28 tpi nut in any hardware or retail shop I would be impressed.

Could you use something like this to protect the threads? My local hardware store carries these for under a buck. They come in several sizes and are flexible enough to slide over the threads. I found this one here.

I have found that some pannel nuts are 1/2-28. Look at pannel mounting lights, switches and bulkhead connectors. I found a BNC bulkhead connector that has that thread for the nut sceuring it to the bulkhead or pannel with 1/2-28 thread.
For 5'8-24 I found that a 7/16 tubing compression nut, the kind that uses a ferrul to commect to copper tubing is 5/8-24. Also a vhf anntenna cable connector for connecting to a VHF marine radio is 5/8-24 as well. I just ordered a pack of 25 for $15.
and no the 3/8 is 1/2-24 not 28 so you have to stick to the electronics pannel nuts for that thread size so far as I can see.

I'd just cut a piece of 1/2" id plastic tubing and thread it on. If it needs to be more permanent than that, even a plain hex nut is $11.
