I'm going nuts trying to locate a source for a specific size of wire/cable clip/clamp. Here's a picture:They are 3/8" wide, and fit a 1/8" diameter cable. The screw hole is ~ 0.150" in diameter, so they easily take a #6 screw. I have a couple in my miscellaneous hardware collection. Some have an oxidized tin finish, and some appear to be bright zinc plated. I have no idea where the ones I have came from, or how ancient they might be. They can't be that exotic, given that I have some from two different sources.
I have tried McMaster Carr, Keystone, Heyco, Digikey, Allied, Mouser, etc., to no avail. Part of the problem is that everyone calls them something slightly different. Most of the clips only go down to half an inch wide, which won't work. The only 3/8" wide clips I can find are from KMC Stampings, and they have a 1/8th inch hole, which won't take a #6 screw.
I need ~ 100 of these for a product I have in mind, so it's more than I want to drill out, and too few to warrant ordering them custom. The alternative to these clamps is to do a lot more machining, which will probably render the entire effort uneconomical. It took me a couple weeks of pondering to come up with this approach, and given that I already have enough to build some prototypes, I figured I was all set.
I've mostly been focusing on electronics vendors, because that is the most likely source for the ones I have. They could also be used to hold down tubing on something, or control cables on lawn mowers, etc.
Does anyone recognize these & can you recommend a supplier?
