Proposed merge to Thumbscrew (fastener)[edit]

I'm suggesting a merge because I don't think either of these topics will have enough content entire articles. "Thumbscrew" should be the combined article name because both of these types of fasteners are known as thumbscrews. ~ Booya Bazooka 21:12, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Oppose One is a nut and the other is a screw, which makes them two completely different things. Instead I would merge this into nut (hardware) and the other article into screw. Wizard191 (talk) 19:02, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
Oppose and closing this request, now open for over a year. In the meantime, the article at Thumbscrew (fastener) has itself been merged to List of screw drives#Thumbscrew. Whatever the merits or otherwise of that merge (and it seems to me that the target article is at least now misnamed as a list), Wingnut (hardware) is itself a perfectly good stub and topic, and should grow to a good article.
