  • 1-72 threaded rod supplier

    Anyone know where I might be able to find steel threaded rod in 1-72, not stainless, not brass. Seems everyone who used to sell it stopped, eg Smallparts.

    There's a company in or near Milwaukee Wisconsin that makes & sells all sorts of threaded rod. I cannot remember the name, but maybe someone else can help out.

        Last time I checked, our local hobby shop had 2-56 and also something smaller. I don't recall what thread that was-

        The name escapes me at the moment, but there's a manufacturer that has been there for decades making parts for modelers- huh, I'm drawing a blank. Anyway, check a hobby shop. Threaded rod usually available 12 inches long.

          #1 is an odd size. The even sizes are more available. Mcmaster has 2 mm metric threaded rod in plain steel. Halfway between #1 and #2. .078 dia instead of .072.

            Have you tried American Model Engineering Supply in Florida?

            I cannot find 1-72 in their catalog, but it is quite old, with 2-56 being the smallest they list. It wouldn't hurt to call them to see if they now stock it.

                  Try refining that a bit. -brass -stainless -nut. Now all you have left is 1" rod 72" long.

                    I have checked the sources given and no luck. Like it was made by one company and they stopped, or something. Oh well, we can make do with the other stuff.

                      Have you checked with a jeweler or jewelery supply company?

                            Having checked- the smaller threaded rod I saw at the hobby shop was 2mm, and not threaded all the way. And it could even have been stainless

                              Sorry, my bad, I didn't see the "not" in stainless. You are correct. I
                              did find 2-56 steel from mcmastercarr Its .086 diameter vs .073 for the
                              1-72, not much of a difference. I don't know why they don't make 1-72 in
                              steel. Maybe because its so small if it starts to rust it would
                              disappear???
