Source for a 32mm spinner that takes a 6mm shaft?

Having a hard time trying to find the above spinner that will take a 6mm shaft. I have found one that uses a grub screw, but was hoping to find one that small that uses a clamp style.

Anyone have any good sources?

Check out this page, near the bottom of the page in the aluminum precision spinners.
Its not 32 mm but it is pretty close (30mm) and with a 6mm shaft.

iCare would be easy for you to deal with being 'up there'..

The RFM spinners work great, however..

I was actually going to a HM spinner from Puffin Models but the 32mm has only a grub screw, but starting from 35mm and up, it uses a clamp style to fix onto the shaft.

This setup will be using a kontronik fun 500/27 5.21GB, a 18x7 prop and a 3S lipo. Will a grub screw spinner be OK, or for that size setup should I be looking more for the clamp style?

I was hoping to get a black spinner so the search continues...

Grub screws work better than collett style as you go up in power. All the F5B guys are using them.

Not really--collets are better for securing things at high power--there is much more surface area doing the work. Also you don't have to hack up the shaft to get the set screw to hold...

That's what I actually ended up going with. A 35mm HM spinner with a clamp style. It was the smallest spinner that I could find with the collet style, any smaller and they were set screws. It will be slightly larger than I need, but it should at least be secure.
