Default What site sells grommets?



Topic

Circle rubber grommets (that the name?). I can not find them.My hobby shop only hadthose square ones for servos. I need the circular ones with metal pins. It is for the Smart Fly Power Expander so it must fit that.

Any good site that has them?

Thanks for the help

Tower has the older Futaba S-148 style round grommets.

You also might try Smart-Fly.

You can the 1/8 inch inside diameter rubber grommets from Grainger Supply. A box of 50 for $1.92 . These are the round grommets.

This where I get mine.

I don't know where you got that information. I order from them, then go by and pick my order up. You don't have to register or have a company name or anything. Just have a credit card, place your order as a guest and badda bing, badda bang. You're done.


They also have a lot of other stuff that you can use in the hobby.

They told me I had to open an account and have a resale or sale tax exempt number, and that they didn't sell to private parties.

It was like that a long time ago but since they have loosened up a bit( a sale is a sale , I guess). You still get better pricing if you are "on file".

They just want you to have an account so all your information is in the computer. It speeds up their billing and shipping labels.

I have found that they have some really good tools also. Not as cheap as Harbor Freight, but much better quality.

Plus their prices on hardware. How about a box of 100 8-32 socket head cap screws for $14.30. These are the ones that I use for engine mounts on my 60 size engines, and mounting my retracts.

https://www.grainger.com/Grainger/So...E14?Pid=search

Or these 4-40 x 1inch for $14.58 for smaller engines. https://www.grainger.com/Grainger/So...B90?Pid=search

Or 8-32 blind nuts; https://www.grainger.com/Grainger/T-...GH2?Pid=search for $6.84 for a box of 100.

What does it cost for a package of 4 from Great Planes or Tower?

Get several friends together and order all the fasteners you will need for a very long time for a lot less.
