Who makes the best touring drops?
 
The title says, it. I need the best derailleur drops with double eyelets. Currently I am using custom ones, or Novas with single eyelets. Actually singles are enough for the way I rig. That said I would like to have some that look more conventional and are high end. I like the ones Dazza has. I need a supplier who sells to amateurs. The Nova eyelets look more fender grade than expedition grade. I need my threads to be machinery grade fits. I am collecting parts for a desktop, over the top beefy, cnc mill. I hope it will be able to get me to a place were I will be able to produce my own.

I'm on a nostalgia kick these days. I'm building a homage to my first Peugeot touring bike in the 70s.

Have you checked ceeway? A few to choose from in double eyelets (some of them a bit beefier). Not sure about the thread fits, they should be okay...

Far as I know Dazza does not have the same policy regarding insurance as e-Richie.
It sure looks like his dropouts are available from Peter at Ceeway though they may not have the name cast in them.
