european brass control horns threaded

Brass- metric - control horns.
I am looking for a European source for 3m control horns; mp jet calls them a cable coupler.
The one I am looking for has a shoulder or stop flange some have tapers others straight thread then flat with the hole drilled in the flat portion and length varies.
These screw into the aileron or flaps and the clevis attaches to them.
European manufactures of high performance sailplane use them and provides them with their kits.
Loose one and you’re in trouble, as the length must match as well as the type thread.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, please provide links.
Thanks
woody

Woody, I ordered some Graupner horns, brass(small), Aluminum(large) from HobbyLobby
that seem to be like the ones Soaring USA includes with there kits. Go to index and search for aileron horns. The low drag ones may be what you're looking for, but they're out of them at the moment. Chris

Chris,
I talked to soaring usa, they do not have a source.
the two on the left are NYX, the single long one manufacture unknown, the two on the right are ARIS, I need them, missing 1 aileron horn, they shippe 4, arms 2 for flap and 2 for aileron, but I got 3 flap and 1 aileron!!!!
the threads are not the same course.

Andy,
I have some of those, no match for what I am looking for.
I have tried all known us suppliers and have visited several hobby shops, no source found.
I felt if I tried our friends in europe I might find the source that aris buys from and get a few extra.
Thanks woody

Have you checked Hoellein - http://www.hoellein.com/ - ? They have a lot of stuff, but not much in the way of pictures, so you need to know what they're called. I've had good luck ordering from them in the past..
