    It's a half-ass bolt. That's because whoever designed whatever it goes in did a half-ass job. There's almost never any need for something that complicated that couldn't be solved with a better design job.

    Thanks everybody for the serious input and ‘avin a larf with this fun topic!


    splonge valve trunkling guide cross pin, from a Mk 37 B.2 Turboencabulator (Type - Southern Hemisphere)
    We use to have those down here, but stopped making them when we got funny looks or hung up on…


    Does the internal threaded go all the way down to the cross hole
    No, it doesn’t go through


    Snap Screw or it maybe a snap nut
    hexagonally inverted steloid camsnapper
    Like the sound of those but couldn’t seem to back it up on google


    machine screw thread Sammy rod hanger
    Would the split pin hole need to be threaded?


    transverse rod connector
    I believe this is the intended purpose Bob, but was not the application I found it being used for (see below)


    Custom bolt -- to customer specs
    It was probably made for a special job
    Yes, probably. Ok so these bolts were being used as axles for Montblanc 2-wheel roller luggage – one bolt for each wheel. The shoulder slotted neatly into a plastic housing, supporting the whole wheel/axle unit and preventing axle rotation. The shaft of the bolt supported the two anti-friction bearings in the wheel (poorly, ~0.3 mm clearance on shaft), and the M4 x 0.5 took a torx screw which held the wheel on.

    There didn't seem to be any purpose to the hex head, split pin hole and channel, or the 8mm x 20mm hole into the head. So, as I said, I don't think this was the application it was designed for.


    I'm proud to say that I didn't make it
    ditto

    Thank you all

    No tag-team room needed. Dude just picks random threads to drop a meaningless line about sharing knowledge, look at all his other posts. Only time will tell when he thinks his post count is high enough to activate "Phase 2" of the master plan.

    So it's not a fastener, it's an axle. And is held in place by a legit fastener.

    I hate misleading thread titles.

    It is a fixed axle in that application, however appears to be much more like a bolt or coupler/connector, hence the use of fixing in the thread title

    No! You did NOT use the term "fixing" in the original post. The word used is FASTENER. Learn the difference!

    Weasel click bait ...

    Yes you're right, I posted in a rush late last night.

    But seriously, is everybody on this forum so welcoming to new members?

    Is that a serious question?

    I want to find a better version of the same bolt for my customer, where there's much less clearance between the shaft and the bearing. I thought rather than just ask for that, especially as a new forum member trying to leverage knowledge before having really contributed, I could ask it in a fun way.

    Even so, not overly impressed with the reception. You guys been burned by people trying to sell things?

    I think everybody contributing to this thread should stop for a moment and have a think about how we treat each other. Is this how you would like to be treated?

    We all get a say in what we think society should look like, and I personally want to live in a world where we help each other out and learn from each other. Surely that was/is the intent of this forum?

    I kinda like the down under jokes, but can we all be better than sniping or writing other negative comments

    Good.darts, welcome to the forum. Sorry that you got a bit singed in the process ... that often goes with the territory in a free-wheeling forum of machinists, but not always, and it is rarely clear why one thread goes off the rails while another stays on topic.

    BTW, I thought the complaint about this being an axle rather than a fastener was made in jest ... ? But as always, hard to tell in the "flat" medium of text on a screen.

    "seo" in his name is a dead giveaway.
