I have never seen those, but they look very nice. Can't see why they wouldn't work great if you use 4/40 hardware.

Personally I prefer the links which attach internally, then apply a wrap of kevlar thread and a good soaking of thin ca to the outside.




These look like they would leave quite a shoulder at the edge which could hang up passing through a bulkhead or fuse side - the website does not specify the material - hope it is not aluminum..........[:-]

I've been using these titanium ones with very good success -

edit -found on the site to use stainless 303 - good materials -

I've been making the same type on my metal lathe for a while now, didn't realize there was a company making them.

I love them!!

I just got a bag, looks like they will work nicely. My only concern, and it is slight, is that there really is not that much glue area. Should be ok, but always a bit concerned about that connection.

The FAQ page says they're made of 303 Stainless Steel....
