I need help in identifying this part. It's the part in the middle of this picture.
It is threaded inside and threads into a threaded rod. I don't know the thread size, it's small and the overall lenght of this is maybe 3/8's. It's stainless steel I believe. anyone know what this is called and WHERE I could purchase a quanity of them? Thanks in advance!

It looks like the adjusting part at the end of a bicycle brake cable.

Thanks everyone for the replys! They have been very helpful!~ The part is threaded on an internal rod inside a pair of tongs.
