Is there a part that looks like this? And it's name is....

04/21/2008 10:58 PM

Is there an "off the shelf" part that looks similiar to this? I am trying to see if one is made that could be purchased rather than having to have custom machining done. The diameter of the pin part would be about 1", and the collar would be around 1.5-2". These are just round numbers, just looking to see if it has a name.

And if this has a name, would you please tell me it?

ROFLMAO!

That struck me as ridiculously hilarious! I had to leave my office to recompose myself.

Thank you JE. I needed that this morning.

Me thinks it is a pivot pin with a groove for a snap ring to hold it in place in a plate.

Yes, that is exactly what it is. The technical name is a doohickey. It is inserted into a thingamajig and secured with a whatchamacallit.

No, Stan is right, it's a pivot pin with a groove for a snap ring or e-clip....

That is called a spring loaded stock-lifter. It carries a strip of sheet steel across a progressive die from one station to the next. There are usually few inches apart. Depending on the thickness of the stock strip. The thicker the gauge the less you need. They positioned on each side of the die. The larger dia. Is for the spring. The ring surface by the smaller dia. stops against the bottom of the die block when the die opens.

This is necessary when there are form stations above the surface of the die blocks. The lifters carry the strip over them to reach the next station.

Standard stock item.

I'm using one as a token in my Monopoly set. Borrowed it from my kid's travel chess set...a pawn.

Removable locating pin.

Jig and fixture pin.

Clevis pin (weld a washer to it)

There are so many different pins/dowels/fasteners out there the hard part is diggin through them all to find the one you want.

The Slot at the end of/top of the lifter holds the stock strip and guides it through to die.

Hmph - seems pretty definitive to me - I gave a "GA" vote to each of your posts because you seem to have 'pinned' it down...

The pin you need that I know is similar in size is threaded on both ends- yet has enough non-threaded boss- that you could cut it off, and machine a circlip grove on it, --- It is a Monroe shock absorber mount. Ask any Napa Auto Parts store to look into their shock absorber catalog- and you will see it listed as an accessoy

It is called SPRING POST!

The top groove is used to arrest the loop of coil springs.

Hope, this info is useful ! all the best.

Steel? Aluminum? Brass or plastic? The more info, the better the response. Any idea what sort of equipment it comes in? The answers you've got so far all sound good, but they can't all be right!

I've seen that sort of formation on printing presses and heavy automotive floor jacks.

The straight end press fits into a machined plate, the grooved end serves either as the holder for the end of spring, a pivot point, or may have a plate fitted over it, like on my heavy jack, and a clevis pin holds it in place.

A rather common arrangement and part. Bet a stock hardware book would turn up any number and sizes of such.
