50mm M2.5 standoffs
« on: January 05, 2018, 12:42:40 PM »
 I am looking for some female.female M2.5 standoffs 50mm long. At a push I could use a 25mm female/female plus a 25mm male/female but I would prefer a single on  if possible. Anyone know where  I can get these? I don't mind buying 100-off

I have emailed Greenway in the UK who do them but I suspect their MOQ may be huge.

Edit: Need to be metal - don't mind brass or steel as long as it is electrically conductive.

Cheers

Ian

Hi Ian.

I am assuming you have already checked RS or Farnell.

Check Essentra Components.  They used to be called Moss.

Alternatively TR Fastening.

Yes, I checked RS and Farnell first. Also checked Essenta and TR - both only do up to 25mm in M2.5. If it was an M3 I needed it would be no problem.

Something like this?

Well done Holger, that is exactly the type of standoff I am looking for. Strange how a German company has a 2 inch standoff!!

So I have sent them an email.

Thanks for the link.

Unfortunately I cannot buy from them without a VAT number.  :(

Cheers

Trying to buy stuff from ettinger is a nightmare I was trying to get so rivet solder tags but they never responded I think they're wholesale only

Anyhow 50mm l/2.5 is a bit of a tricky one

Will Brass M3 do?

If it was M3 it would not be a problem but is has to be M2.5. I got a reply form Ettinger offering to sell me 200 off for 85 Euros shipped to the UK. I may take them up on that offer.

McMaster-Carr has 2.5mm threaded standoffs. They don't have 50mm but they have 25mm and other sizes. Besides being on this side of the pond it would be more expensive than the Ettinger quote. You can order onsey twosey from McMaster if you want.

50mm seem to exist but not from the normal low volume distributors. However, I did have an email today from Greenway to say they had found some 50mm ones and I could have 100-off ar 32p each whcih is just what I need.
