    Anybody know where I get some of these for less than $100 for four. Need them to be 1 3/4' inner [font=&quot]diameter.

    I don't know. The thickness of that material, and the machining in it, $100/4 sounds not to bad.

    The Poly's are a much better design if it is going to see any stress at all.

    Stupid question, what do you use these for? These look the the compression fittings used to stop pipe leaks.

    I was planing on making a removeable spare tire mount on my cage. I think I am just going to weld the mount straight to the cage and not worry about it being removable.

    So you would weld something to these clamps, like your spare carrier, then bolt them on, so it is removable?

    Cool, thanx. Are they as strong as just welding it on?

    If you don't need something that look exactly the same, try McMaster-Carr (Mcmaster.com). They are called Shaft Collars.

    Ditto!

    Yes--shaft collars are available in 2 peice types --they are only about 3/4 of an inch wide,but you could weld several together to get the length you need..they look identical to the ones pictured in your post,only skinnier!..they aren't cheap,but you could buy at least 10 of them fot 100 bucks I bet..

    W.W. Grainger sells them too..they also sell a "Key Clamp" type of fittings used to make railings,storage racks,and other things out of regular plumbing pipe that look somewhat like those fittings in your picture,but use allen head set screws to bite into the pipe..they are one peice mallebale fittings,not "split" like the ones you pictured though..they are available in many styles,like "tees","4 way crosses","flange mount",etc..might want to check those out too... :crazy:

    I was looking for those tonight, where do you buy those? I need one to make a mount on my tie rod for my hydro ram assist steering. I've already looked at Mcmaster-carr but they don't come in the inside diameter that i need and they also aren't long enough for my application.

    You could buy this part number 60845K96 from McMaster and cut it in half, but it's still $108/2
