    Hi,

    Can anyone please let me know if there is a supplier of "odd" size swing bolts? By "odd", I mean where the inner diameter of the eye is smaller than the thread diameter of the shaft. A Jaeger 1224 elevation bolt has a 12mm inner diameter eye and a 16mm thread on the shaft and I could do with a replacement for a 1224.

    I could buy a normal 16mm swing bolt and shim the eye but if there is a supplier of the correct size it would be preferable.

    Thx

    CJ,

    The bottom one that pivots the entire motor casing with respect to the pole clamp is the one I am after.

    Ah.. yeah, that one is a bit odd. I was also looking for one but was not able to find it. Will probably make my own whenever I eventually get around to restoring the motors.

    CJ,

    Looks to be the only solution.

    I will buy a small length of 16mm OD aluminium pipe with 2mm wall thickness and cut a shim from that. When used with a standard 16mm swing bolt it should give an ID of 12mm to the eye part of the bolt.

    A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

    Use a length of 16mm studding, weld a nut on the end and then drill out the internal thread.

    Thx to all for the replies with links and photos.


    "scopus"

    Thats quite a nice improvisation, did the did you buy the two "U tunnel" unistrut pieces off the shelf or were they offcuts from some other work?

    Thx

    The 'U' brackets are offcuts, luckily they match the 1224 almost perfectly. The stud between the two can be adjusted by undoing the nuts to give any elevation adjustment. The 1224 is actually the EL type and never came with adjuster rod.
