Wide Angle Rod Ends


Recommended Posts

After a lot of research, the joint with the largest angle of movement that I can find in the uk is:

GM/Vauxhall BA0804 / QR3167S

Which allows 37 degrees free movement in either direction.

The thread on the taper is M12 x 1.5 pitch and on the shank is Female M14 x 1.5mm pitch. Both Right Hand.

Since nobody seemed to be able to answer this question - I thought it would be a good thing to put on file!

Sadly, the angle isn't quoted. Even if you talk to a very helpful chap at Q&H, they have no idea! The only answer is to go to a shop & start opening boxes (A pack of choccy HobNobs does wonders).

Interesting tech.

M14 is a little small though, i'm on M24 and i've still bent one.

You may be right - and on the joints intended to take a radial force, I intend adding an additional stop behind the cup to prevent it moving - just to be on the safe side!
