Sounds like it's M4 or maybe an odd version M5 - but certainly not M6 or M8.
Dreambox1959 noted in a recent thread that an actuator worm was an imperial size:I'm wondering if the thread might NOT be metric , but some sort of "Imperial" thread as the thread form & dimensions might possibly be 3/16th UNF ("Unified Fine")????
Nowadays, in the UK, we have very few such hardware stores, and even fewer that might have thread/pitch gauges!Take it down to you local hardware strore and see if they have a thread/pitch gauge, this will give you an idea on what diameter bolt and thread pitch to look for.
Imperial, which is why linear actuators have always been sold in 12/18/24"
Hi channel hopper I only need one,so if you can throw up a picture of it on here and if it's not to bad I would appreciate it if you can post it to me,I will cover postage.thanks a lotImperial, which is why linear actuators have always been sold in 12/18/24"
I can find some this weekend in the shed but they will not be pristine.
PS: Now I'm thinking it might be 1/8th UNF as the diameter of a 3/16th UNF bolt would be too large (circa 4.76mm)I'm wondering if the thread might NOT be metric , but some sort of "Imperial" thread as the thread form & dimensions might possibly be 3/16th UNF ("Unified Fine")????
thanks rimants,channel hopper is looking in hes shed at weekend so will see if he can locate one for me and it would be here quicker in post as hes in the uk.Well, I have dug dipper into the issue. Removed bolts from 4 actuator motors. 2 of them have Mx95mm bolts, one has M4x85mm bolts and one has threaded rods with imperial thread (very similar to M5, but M5 nut does not fit). I suspect that @butchyboy needs M4x95mm bolt, which I can send. But suspect that sending even a small package to UK will cost something like 5 EUR.
