View Full Version : Where to buy D1-4 pins?

10-24-2007, 11:41 PM
I just bought a dog plate on ebay (not a face plate) a dog drive plate. It is for D1-4 but does not have the pins. They are threaded 7/16 20. I have looked on several sites like Enco , MSC, Shars. So far no one has them listed.

Any idea's?

PM me an address and dimension info. I think I may have a set for you from a Clausing face plate. It was labeled D1-4, but I don't remember the threads...

Bad..tried to PM but your box is full.

Here is a link to the specs for a D1-4 pin remember mine has a 7/16 20 thread.

Is it this hard to find pins? May be why this was for sale on ebay.

I cleaned out some PMs. They don't give you much here do they? Anyway, I'll try to dig them out tomorrow and get some basic info. Legs are killing me, so I'm done for the night, except for waiting on them to settle down.

last i looked (eons ago) the only place i could locally find them was Kar or one of the crazy expensive European tooling places, they wanted like $40 a pin so i made them. not hard to do. I used drill rod and left it annealed and its worked perfectly.

KBC lists them as well (Bison) but with metric threads only. # 7-899-104. It states that the thread is M10x1 so they are a bit too small for your catch plate. Perhaps an insert could be made.

You could always just drill and tap three new holes on a 3 1/4" p.c.d. for M10 x 1mm and fit new metric studs.

JLIndustrial has both metric thread and UNF - see their part number MCT-55708C Not a bad deal at $14.35, I couldn't make one for that. They list the MSC part number where it's listed at $13.80

I must be stupid I looked for hours online MSC and did not find a thing.

I will go check J+L and see. The ones I have now are hardened and ground. I use my lathe heavily and am changing chucks 4-5 times daily at times. If the pins are not hard they will wear quickly in my application. Making them was not an option for me.

Thanks guys for all your help.

I made two sets, used drill rod. Turned the rod down for the threads cut the threads, used horiz mill to cut the camlock grove in the side of the pin,then used the verticle head of the mill to cut the lock screw grove in the side. If you have a horizontal mill with a verticle head the pins are easy to make.

Thanks for the help from you guys here I found (3) places that have them. They were not advertised in 2 MSC, Enco only J+L. Since they are all the same company I tried to get Enco to get them. Well it seems that MSC has 1 and J+L has 1 and Enco 0. I need 3. Bison has them for 39.00 each so I elected not to go that route.

At this point my choice is to have MSC order them special order and drop ship them. Will be expensive.

Can't understand why it is so hard to get these. The metrics are all over. USA thread no where. Makes you go Hmmmmm!!!:mad:
