Maybe the thickness of the nut varies.

By definition, a hobby should be fun. Do you mean it's "fun" to stew over whether or not a stud is of the 'politically correct' length??

For some, yes. The quest to reproduce something as it was originally is fun for some. One could say the same thing about almost any hobby.

Do you mean it's "fun" to stew over whether, your scale model has an actual running engine.

Do you mean it's "fun" to stew over whether your time in the last race was better or worse then the one before.

Do you mean it's "fun" to stew over whether the PH level is exact for your aquarium.

See what I mean? Fun for some is nit picking pain the ass for others.

I've always wondered where nits were picked?

BTW, this is probably the extreme nitpickin'. I'm wanting to replace a cracked seat in my 1959 Crestliner runabout and I can't find the exact 6 screws that should be used. 12-28 x 1 1/2" oval head phillips drive aluminum screws. I can't even find something close, like stainless 12-24 x 1 1/2".
