Need help identifying something


What you have are probably Oilite bushings (that's a brand name). Try their website. You can also check the McMaster-Carr website.

Stack them. Put one bushing inside the other to get your OD.

Unfortunately I cannot do that. This project is a little too high end for that. It must be one piece.

I have been all over Northern VA and have yet to find what I need.

Apparently Airsoft guns have something similar inside them. I believe it's also used to hold a spring.

For the amount of time you have spent looking for them...you could have knocked them out on a lath in your garage.

Any good machinest could spit out a few of those in just minutes...just needs a detailed drawing.

Sure thing, would you like to lend me the cash for the metal blocks?

The machine shop where I live would probably charge me $500 to have something like that made. That's even with me supplying the drawing.

Still, it's an option if things get dicey. I'm not at that point yet. If worse comes to worse, I'll stack two thick washers as someone else suggested.

This is turning into a nightmare.

At long last, I found out who makes these things.

Someone in another post mentioned the site and I had looked there but didn't find anything. Apparently I looked in the wrong section and just gave up. Stupid me.

They are made by McMaster Carr and are labeled under shoulder bushings.

Thanks so much to everyone that helped me along the way. I really appreciate the help. And, it's nice to know that I can come here and get help like this.


Thank you, Md2lgyk.

You're welcome. But McMaster-Carr doesn't make anything. Nor will they tell you who does make what they sell. Still a good resource though.

You are exactly right. I called them and requested the exact piece and they told me that they do not carry that.

It's funny, because the guy that I talked to that bought them told me he got them from McMaster Carr. I even tried Oilite. That was also a no-go. Talk about frustrating.

Well, I am back to square one. Again.

On a side note, can anyone tell me the name of this? It escapes me. It appears to be some sort of tie rod. But google gives me tie rod ends for cars

Thanks

To add on the heim joint....commonly used in cars/jeeps in place of tie rods ends.

Yes, it is. I have to say, I was a little skeptical of this site as there are tons of them out there and some are filled with garbage.

So far I have been extremely impressed with what I have seen.

I was watching a video about injection molding the other day. The guy in the video explaining how the process works mentioned that if you talk to random people on the street, chances are you'll find someone that knows everything about injection molding. The same is true for just about everything really. This site is no exception. Someone here knows everything about something

This thread is my first experience here, and I have to say again that I am extremely impressed.
