    <font color="green"> www.mcmaster.com Give me a few minutes and I'll get you a link to the page they're on.

    *EDIT*

    OK, just type "clevis" in the search box and it will take you right to page 1047, that's where they are. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif</font>

    Thanks a bunch Shaggy that site is sweet. The only problem is, with all the clevises that they do have, they dont have threaded shank like the picture above... they only have threads on the inside of the shank so you can thread a bolt to it. I dont think this would work my application though. Ill keep looking around.

    <font color="green"> What are you making? You could get a piece of threaded rod to connect the female clevis to whatever it's beign attached to. Tell me what dimensions it needs to be, I'll look around.

    If worst comes to worst, you could get the blank ends on page 1047 and then go to 1046 to get it's counterpart in a male threaded version.</font>

    Yeah I thought of the same thing Shaggy-- The only problem is, no one seems to carry a 1/2"-20 (fine) threaded stud. It only needs to be about 3 inches long (full thread or two end-threaded). Thanks for the help.

    <font color="green"> Duuuude, McMaster has it all! Go to the fastener section on the main page, choose "threaded rod and studs", then "threaded rod". Choose your thread size, they do have the 1/2"x20, and it gives you some choices for material. So long as you don't need super high strength stuff then it should work fine. just cut it to length and you're good to go. 2' of xinc plated steel is 2 bucks, stainless is 6 bucks. Cheap! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif</font>
