    Has anyone seen these for OB 8mm threaded rod? These are from dumpsterCNC.com, but they don't have any for metric rod. I think they are delrin but I'm not sure. Love to see some for Openbuilds rod.

    You might send the guy at dumpstercnc a note asking if he'd consider producing them for TR8x8. He works out of a shed behind his house and is likely to go with whatever the market desires.

    Thanks Rob. They don't seem to carry fittings for TR8*8-2p. (They've got 8x1.5.)

    BTW, I got a reply from Tim at dumpsterCNC. "I'm not able to make them at this time, but will consider that size in the future." So, guess I'll have to keep looking....(or buy a lathe and tap and make my own - yeah, like that's gonna happen...)
