Micro threaded rod?

I remember a old post that someone was using the threaded rod out of a linear pot. Anyone have this link or a part number for the pot? need it for a swing wing I’m working on.

Try Small Parts, Inc. (www.smallpartsl.com)

One possibility is Small Parts, Inc. They have a variety of threaded rods, including very small sizes. For example, in sstainless steel:

Look for trimpots, some are squarish rotary worm gear based.
The ones to look for are longish and have the long threaded rod.
Digikey, Mouser?

The trim pots you would need are multi turn pots, go for the 30 turn. But that said just buy long #0/86 screws or smaller. I think I once saw some #00 threaded rod listed at Small Parts, but I'm not sure.

How many inch is an 1.5mm diameter ???

Hi , please help me to understand how are called the diameters ( I' m French ).

I now that 1 inch is 2.54cm

I search 1.5mm diameter Threaded Rod , i find 0.059 inch is the theorical value for the diameter and I think i will not find this value in practice ....... What is the nearset ( "more near" ) value ???



1/16 of inch dosn' t exist ( 1/16 inch = 1.58 mm )

What means 0 , 00 , 000 , 0000 ?

great , thanks you

..... for your link about :


Decimal and Millimeter Equivalents of Fractional Parts of an Inch

( Equivalence de décimale et de millimètre des fractions de mesures en pouce )

Code:
 
 
 
Size Number: 000 00 0 1
Diameter: .034 .047 .060 .073
I found my 1.5mm screew diameter , it' s ~ "0 size"

And : "1 size" = 1.85mm diameter

00 size = 1.2mm diameter

000 size = 0.86mm diameter

Thanks

"0 size" is not exactly 1.5mm

You will need to use 0-80 nuts to fit it

the "-80" means 80 threads per inch

OK , for my 1st application it will be OK because I will fit the Threaded Rod in a plastic part .

I also search where to buy 1.5mm Threaded Rod for an other application where i must use nuts .

Perhaps i finaly will must buy 0-80 nuts , and become an "Imperial screews user"
