Wanted: 5mm retract pins
« on: August 09, 2020, 07:34:21 am »
Does anyone know where I can get some (good quality) 5mm x 40mm retract pins from?

Some places call them steel dowels.  I am OK to cut my own positioning slots in them, but would prefer hardeded steel (so they don't bend.)

Thanks!
Simon

Hey Simon. How about just using the shaft from a 5 mm drill, or see if you can find drill blanks on amazon?
What could possibly go wrong?
