Body Post - Plastic Rod

Recommended Posts

Hi All - Have run out off hollow plastic rod that I've been using for body posts, and the local hobby shop has none on hand + their supplier has none listed. :rolleyes:

It is shiny white hard plastic rod with approx a 2mm bore - perfect for body screws

 

Does anyone have a trusted seller or store - online or real - they can recommend?

 

Thanks

Pat

It's probably not what you want but if you want cheap & you have kids or like them yourself try the following.

 

Get a chuppa chump stick

cut to size

tape (or a drop of superglue) an m2 screw centrally inside gluing only the outer bit of stick.

from other end fill the stick full of hot glue, could probably use a filler if wanted but hot glue is OK. I haven't had one pull out yet and thread seems to hold OK.

Then when cooled untape (or break superglue) and unscrew m2.

 

Only a suggestion if you can't find what you are after.


Cheers Grant
