I need 1/4" scale oarlocks for the Benjamin Latham seine boat.  None of the usual suppliers have any in stock close to this scale.  I have been waiting for 2 months for canadian dealer who claims he has them on order.  Has anyone tried to make locks from scratch?  I am thinking of just putting in thole pins, even if they wouldn't be accurate (I don't think).

Opinions?

Hints?

You may even get away with soft soldering if you don't have facilities to silver solder.  As there'll be no weight on the rowlocks thaey should be OK so long as you drill through the strip part to solder the wire.
