  • Looking for source of snap on 10-32 nylon ball joints

    Hi, I had gotten some of these years ago, but can't find them now at a reasonable price. The site hosting this image (with no part #) don't stock and want $6 each to drop ship a couple dozen. That's silly, I can get metal quick disconnects for $2, and they're made of 2 machined steel parts and a spring rather than a bit of injection molded nylon. Any ideas? Googling has not been productive.

    They are used on radio control cars, boats, plains, etc. Try a hobby shop.

        ahidley: this is larger than model shop links, I frequently use the 2-56 and 4-40 sizes for cars and planes.

              I've been using RC model linkages in my work for decades, they just don't have them this big. Tower Hobbies is an ENORMOUS online store, they don't have them.

              gld: I had seen several other products from the UK too, but none available here in the US.

                The pictured item is made by tuthill. Google and call them direct or buy them at the below link. They are pictured at the bottom of the links page.

                  Thanks but been there, done that. They have not made them in a decade. And as I said in the OP Accent wants $6 each to have them drop shipped. I want to find who actually makes them or stocks them.
