U67 swivel mount set screws
« on: June 02, 2019, 03:43:06 pm »

Klaus,
 Charlie directed me your way to inquire about sourcing (or info necessary in fabricating) this part.

I have a u67 swivel that somehow ended up loosing two of the screws. I'd like to remanufacture at a machine shop if no replacement exists but I'd at least need a thread pitch (and possibly screw diameter) if I can.

Can you assist me in this?

Diameter: 2.90mm (M3)
Pitch: 0.5mm
Overall length, including conical tip: 5.20mm.

P.S.: Say 'Hi!' to Charlie! One of about twelve Charlies I know will probably be the one!

That's funny you caught that. I fixed it. This is what I get for trying to post from my cell phone. It ALWAYS thinks it knows how to spell correct better than I do...


Thanks. I'm gonna find someone to fabricate these for me.

You should be able to find metric hardware (M3 X.5 X 5) in most well stocked hardware stores or Hobby Shops.

Thank you, Uwe. It may be worth mentioning that a 5mm length will recess the screws quite a bit into the barrel. I'd rather look for a 6mm length or longer and trim it down to size, so that the recess of the screw once installed is minimal.
