must re-tap each end of rod ends

June 24, 2016
each rod end had to be re-taped. first one we received, only ran hiem in 1/4 inch, in froze in that position, and it could not be removed. returned it, only to receive another rod, but this time we ran taped first. had we not done so, it would have very likely done the same thing. machine shop needs replace taps more often
Pros:
  • Nice Piece
Cons:
  • Each Time We Recieve
No, I would not recommend this product.

Merchant Response:

Ron, thanks for the feedback! As a side note, we recommend using anti-seize on all stainless and aluminum threads to prevent galling.

These have a wall thickness of .140". These are the thickest aluminum tubes I offer in long lengths. For short lengths from 5" to 24" I offer part number 91034158 which is made of .312" wall thickness 7/8" DOM tubing.
