Default miniature turnbuckles

I want to add some cross bracing to a pair of 1/4 scale floats I scratch built utilizing 4-40 rod and a turnbuckle. Does anyone mfg. a small rod and turnbuckle that has standard right hand threads and a lock nut on the right side and left handed threads on the other side? This sure would make things simple and a very clean installation. We float flyers need cross bracing everywhere!

Dubro makes a steel turnbuckle.

Proctor-Enterprises.com Call Joe. He has turnbuckles with eye, socket and fork ends. You solder the socket or fork end to your bracing wire or rod and attached the other end to your tab mounted on the float.
