HELP! Trying to identify this part

I have located this style part in the Dubro catalog, but's it is much larger. It connects two ailerons on a biplane wing, approx. 40" wingspan. Any ideas?

Those parts were available in many kits,and at one time were offered by Goldberg and Dubro.

They had a variety of uses and were called aileron connectors most often..

They came in different sizes,mostly for 2-56 and 4-40 threads

There must be quite a few ways of linking ailerons on a bipe, but finding a matching 'thingamajig' may not be so easy.

Here's a very simple, (crude ?) way to link ailerons on a bipe -

I've used smaller dubro or gp control horns trimed down to the lowest hole, top of the bottom aileron, and bottom of the top aileron.

That piece needs to be rotated vertical with the hole upward on the bottom wing and downward on the upper wing connected by rod with clevises in each end. Those pieces were used for single servo middle wing aileron torque rod connectors as stated.

A little late, but another option is...

Sig Nylon Aileron Interconnect Horn, cat. no. sigsh755, priced at $5.

They came with some of the older Sig biplane kits. What you have already should work well.
