A machine shop?! custom made..

You might also look for an 'acorn nut' as it has the domed over top. But I bet you're looking for a really pointy nut...

Oops! It's brass, not stainless.

Ballintine lists an optional "threaded shaft w/prop nut" for their drives. Didn't see a pic. Might give them a call. Best to ya!!

Fair warning on the bullet style prop nuts. Most made do not stay on very well. If you do get one, put a piece of large fuel tubing between the nut and the prop. It acts like a lock nut.

I was waiting for someone to say the bullet prop nuts suck.
