These custom captive shoulder screws were manufactured using a modification to a COTS part for our defense customer using 18-8 stainless steel material with standard 2-56 3A thread and standard socket head dimensions. Length underneath the head was designed to .750" +/- .005" and the shoulder was turned to a diameter of .052-.054", at a length of .066" +/- .005". The thread had to be chased for each part to ensure smooth thread transitions after the additional shoulder was incorporated.

We supplied our defense customer with these custom 4140 precision 10-24 nuts after getting an initial sample run completed and tested. Tight tolerances were required on these parts, with most dimensions at +.000/-.005 or +.000/-.003 inches. Overall thickness of the nuts was set at .155" and 10-24 class 2B thread tapped all the way through. Full production of this part was at 20,000 pieces and lead time at approximately 75-90 days from order confirmation.
