Threaded Pins

Post by RWatson7 » Thu, 17 Apr 2003 13:08:28



I use some 1/16" roll pins to secure a spur gear to a shaft. Many years ago
some of these pins had threads on them to hold them in the gear and the pin
part went thru the shaft and into the other side of the gear. The pins were
about 3/4" long and the threaded part was 1/4" long. I could use some more
threaded pins like this. If someone knows where to locate them I would
appreciate a source.
Thanks

It sounds like you are talking about tapered pins, there are two degrees of
taper, one is very slight and is usually meant to be permanent, The other have
about twice
the included angle and are semi-removableThis outfit has them,albeit a little
pricey
I have found what I need in surplus stores, but the reamers are still hard to
find'
except new.  although I found several machinery supply houses that stocked the
reamers,you just have to get the correct taper.

Small parts sells the reamers for taper pins, and I think taper pins for
permanent assembly without threads.

Make sure you put the pin in the right way!
