Topic - The very early threaded out machine nuts

nutstory - on 04 Feb 2013
Bonjour,

Still pushing my research on the Nuts’ Story further and further, I would be most interested to know in which club journal, climbing magazine or mountaineering book the using of machine nuts or threaded out machine nuts as a protection was mentioned for the very first time.
I was very excited when I found the mention of “artificial chockstones” in the excellent “Rock for Climbing” by C. Douglas Milner published in 1950, but I can’t believe that Morley Wood used a “metal artificial chockstone” during the historical ascent of Piggott’s Climb on Clogwyn du'r Arddu… I guess that, in this case, “artificial” means “because it was not there…”
Thank you very much for your interest in my request.
