Help finding a bushing, please...

Post by Externet » Sun Apr 14, 2013 8:35 am

Hi all.
Looking for a bushing, grommet, bezel, flange, anyway you name it, should look like this :

http://www.a1components.com/images/thum ... 2903Wt.jpg

With a 9/16" (14mm) cable hole diameter.

The nearest found so far is
http://www.firstchoicemarine.com/p-4512 ... astic.aspx

Can be for any other use/application as plumbing, cable management, marine, gardening, construction, moon rockets, hydraulics, chassis, but similar. Cannot find such for uses that come to mind; perhaps you ---> :idea:
Thanks, :grin:

would this work ?
http://www.cableorganizer.com/arlington ... -bushings/

or this ? ( i have some of these on hand )
http://www.etrailer.com/Accessories-and ... C8057.html

other suggestion would to be ask your local cable guy. i see them using the ones you showed a lot around here when doing cable installations. you can ask where they order them from, or look on the package, and maybe then see if they make larger ones.
good luck

Thanks, dacflyer.

Been trough everywhere on the net; larger diameter are not manufactured as for my first link :sad:
The hex face and the small flange/black color are undesired :sad:
I was aiming if someone knows an item that has similar shape for whatever other applications.

:grin: How is your heliostat doing ?

Externet - still working on a design,. i cannot get it in my head on how the design should be.
i know it is supposed to be a simple thing, but it is baffling me.

That last post should hit the spot. All the others were researching true bushings and the OP was looking at a coaxial cable feedthru. It's the companies like MCM Electronics and Dalbani that'll have them along with all the other cable TV accessories you'll ever need. Even the dreaded RS may have them.

Wrong!
Coaxial cable feedtroughs are for RG6, some are for double RG6; short from 14mm internal diameter. The fellows replying tried the best they could. You did not.

nothing specific from me but you might add "strain relief" to your search terms

Also try sending your image and specs to these guys. impossible to search the catalog online, not enough pictures. http://www.olander.com/catalog/index.htm

It has been a while since implemented, so decided to post the now tested happy results of the simple cheap contraption : Ceiling night lamps on several (not bed-) rooms at home. 4 leds from AC mains tucked in provide a faint illumination when main ceiling lamps are off. And look good too.
